Default Valve Adjustment

Just tore the MITYMAX down for it's 3rd Valve adjustment.Didn't need shims this time.Valve lash for intake & exhaust were to factory specs.Only took us 3 hours.If u haven't had this done yet,these pic's will show what to expect. Have fun.

How'd you get the front valve cover off without taking the Carb Boots or more off????
I'd been told I'd have to take the Vboost Runners off too. You made it all look easy.
Are you ever gonna vacation in Florida????

Great Job, Rusty...

I obtained permission from Gary to try a new way of listing spare parts I have for sale. At present this is a test contained in my signature area.
My parts list will be updated as I can make more parts available and as parts are sold. Please PM me if anything interests you.

Seems like after an "initial" adjustment once the motor breaks in.....things don't change a whole lot. Someone else here posted a similar story....some adjustments on the first look, the second look everything was still perfect.
