Hey everyone,
I'm attempting to do a badly needed valve adjustment on a d16z1, but I am having a hard time finding the valve clearances anywhere online!
If anyone who knows them could post them up or even give me an idea where I can search for them I'd greatly appreciate that.
:fingersx:

just put them to any d16 spec. adjustment from a book..
I can't remember right off the adjustment sizes to be made
but you would be perfectly fine with any d16 stock size adjustment.

goodluck
I tried adjusting it to d16z6 specs but the ticking just became louder
maybe I did something wrong.. I'll give it another go tomorrow

Thanks for the reply though

no offense & not saying your doing it wrong.
but when I didn't know how to adjust valves & when I did adjust valves
they became louder...

just make sure your putting each cylinder at TDC when adjusting that cylinders valves

all I done was pulled the car slowly while it was in gear & adjusted the valves when the rotor button was aiming towards the correct plug wire on the dizzy cap

goodluck!

search it on google any you'll find DIY guides with photos, just to remove any confusion about the process. i got it wrong the first time i tried too!! :uh:

check this out:
6th Gen (6G) Honda Civic D-Series Valve Lash Clearance Adjustment
I had followed a different DIY guide but with pretty much the exact same procedure as the one you posted. Considering it was my first time and I was doing it in -30 degrees Celsius, I guess it won't hurt to try it again over the weekend.

Thanks for the replies
