ADJUSTING STUDEBAKER VALVES COLD



Chiltons Auto Repair Manual with an adjustment for valves on the V-8 Studebaker engine that puts #1 cylinder at top dead center compression stroke,

then adjusting #1 cyl both; #3 Exhaust; #5 inlet; #7 inlet; #2 both; #4 exhaust; #6 none; #8 both...

Then turn crank one full turn and adj #1 none; #3 both*; #5 both*; #7 exhaust; #2 exhaust*; #4 inlet; #6 both; #8 inlet*.

Here's the list I use. At TDC with #1 on the compression stroke adjust Intakes: 1-2-5-7 and Exhausts: 1-3-4-8

With pointer at 0 and #6 on compression stroke adjust Intakes: 3-4-6-8 and Exhausts: 2-5-6-7

Use .026 cold and you will have .024 hot

Its common for small block Chevys as well. If you go to any Chevy site you will find the same info.
