501 tappet clearances

Postby MarkB » 07 Jul 2012 15:46

My new acquisition is a 3 1/2 with a 501 engine fitted, and it promises to be very nice indeed. I want to check tappet clearances but I'm not sure if they should be the 'standard' 0.1mm or what. Can anyone advise or point me in the direction of some suitable literature?

Many thanks, Mark.

Query solved - thanks Paul. For anyone else needing to know, the 501 tappet clearances are 0.1mm for the J cam (Excalibur) and 0.15 for the L cam (Camel). Now to find the feeler gauge...
