Rocker Arm Adjustment?


The way that a rocker arm is adjusted will vary by the type of vehicle that it is installed on. Typically it will involve loosening the rocker arm adjustment nuts to enable movement of the rocker arm. Once these nuts are loosened, the rocker arm should be able to be moved. The exact tension that should be applied to the rocker arm comes down to preference of the user. There should be no clanging noise, as this is a sign of metal on metal, but beyond that the preference for the rocker arm adjustment comes down to the user and the desired vehicle performance.
