FYI: Valve Clearance check @ 98,268 miles on '05 ABS
Three valve clearances for V4, V5 and V6 IN were off by ~.0005 but within spec.
All other valve clearances were essentially on.
The first time I checked valves, at 46,400 miles, one valve was out of spec so I brought it and 3 others to center spec. This time, I'm letting the three ride.
Initially watching and then reviewing Mr. Harmon's DVDs for this process was huge. I doubt if I could have done this job without his guidance. Well, I would not have tried!
I know there's been some discussion about de-tensioning vs not de-tensioning the cam chain. I tried it both ways this time. I feel my readings were somewhat more accurate with the chains de-tensioned, keeping in mind there's a degree of subjectivity interpreting the resistence of a feeler guage. Of course, the go / no go method clears up a lot of that subjectivity.
