OHV Tappets adjustment (Escorts, Fiesta and Ka)

 

When adjusting Ford OHV  tappets using the rule of 9 principle, there is a short cut.

Turn the engine over so that number 1 cylinder is rocking and adjust number 4 cylinder as normal BUT you can also adjust the Exhaust valve of number 3 cylinder and the Inlet valve of number 2 cylinder.

Then rotate the engine so that number 4 cylinder is rocking and adjust number 1 cylinder as normal and this time you can adjust the Inlet of number 3 cylinder and the Exhaust of number 2 cylinder.

It doesn't sound particularly revolutionary but it speeds the task up and minimises the amount of times you have to rotate the engine.
