Cool Just readjusted my valves today.

I readjusted to be a little looser. The throttle was not as responsive, but I hope it might save some gas.
Previously I had it with the intakes at 0.009 in. and the exhausts at 0.011 in.

I readjusted to instakes 0.010 in. and the exhaust 0.012 in.

Here's a video after the adjustments. Are the valves still ticking too loud? The video is made after the car has been driven and fully warmed up.

Thanks.

Well, no input as to my motor is ticking too loud or not? Post your motor sound video so I can compare.
Thanks.

I don't think I have ever heard this motor without ticking, even after an oil change. Here's a prelude F22a1 motor.
F22A1 sound.

Dude,
Not just you. Even I can't see my own post video. But I make it into a link. I thought because I got rid of Java. But it's not that.

idk ,, also restrictions of any kind can be diagnosed as ticking or tapping ,, i cleaned my IACV and FITV and re adjusted the base idle and that made it a bit more quiet and starting RPMs are around 1500 which i've read is good ,, warms up in 3-5 mins depending on weather

Our F22 is always going to have ticking. I just want to compare to others to see if I should tighten them up a little or not.
Thanks.

Dude, that is a lot of miles on the car. I barely put 1100 miles since June of last year. No job, no drive any where. Lol.

It seems like my gas mileage is improving. When I had my last tank less than a half, I managed from 20 to 22 MPG. Now on a new full tank, the meter seems to stay put toward full longer. We'll see when this tank is gone. It'll be a while as I don't work and it takes longer to empty it. Most of the driving is in the city too.

Thanks for the write up
I did this today using this and the ericthecarguy video

I also noticed the pictures were not working, so I took a few while I was doing it (maybe they can replace some with broken links):

when I removed the wires and plugs


removed distributor cap (removed air filter to access lower screw)


then removed valve cover


I used wrench a to turn motor counterclockwise


when the arrow on the sprocket was nearing straight up


I slowed down and lined up the notches on the gear with the cylinder head


and made sure the distributor rotor was pointing at wire one (couldn't find marks on flywheel)


I used the feeler gauges to check the gaps according to spec


I didn't adjust most of them because they felt just right to me. 2 intake valves were too loose, and a few exhaust ones were too tight, so I backed them off. Hardest part for me was breaking the screw loose from the nut, I got a better screwdriver and got it done.


oh, you should make sure the torque wrench handle is tight, and don't over tighten the valve cover bolts
