Valve Adjustment
Rotate the engine so that the timing marks on the front cover and the crankshaft pulley are aligned. Number 1 cylinder should be at top dead center (TDC).

Before adjusting the valve clearance, loosen the adjustment screw both on the rocker arm and the valve bridge.

Important: Adjust the intake valves on cylinders 1, 2, and 4.
Adjust the exhaust valves on cylinders 1, 3, and 5.
Adjust all the valve clearances to 0.4 mm (0.016 in).
Insert a feeler gauge between the rocker arm and the cap of the valve bridge, and adjust by turning the adjusting screw on the rocker arm, until there is a slight drag on the feeler gauge.
Tighten the lock nut securely.
With a feeler gauge inserted, screw in the adjusting screw on the bridge gradually, until it touches the end of the valve stem, then ensure that the movement of the feeler gauge becomes hard.
Notice: Refer to Fastener Notice.
In this condition, the opposite end of the bridge is raised. Readjust by loosening the adjusting screw on the bridge, until there is a slight drag on the feeler gauge, then tighten the lock nut securely.
Tighten
Tighten the adjusting lock nut to 22 Y (16 lb ft).
Rotate the engine one full turn so that the timing marks on the crankshaft balancer and the front cover are in alignment again.
Important: Adjust the intake valves on cylinders 3, 5, and 6.
Adjust the exhaust valves on cylinders 2, 4, and 6.
Adjust all the valve clearances to 0.4 mm (0.016 in).
Insert a feeler gauge between the rocker arm and the cap of the valve bridge, then adjust by turning the adjusting screw on the rocker arm, until there is a slight drag on the feeler gauge.
Tighten the lock nut securely.
With a feeler gauge inserted, screw in the adjusting screw on the bridge gradually, until it touches the end of the valve stem, then make sure that the movement of the feeler gauge becomes hard.
In this condition, the opposite end of the bridge is raised. Readjust by loosening the adjusting screw on the bridge, until there is a slight drag on the feeler gauge, then tighten the lock nut securely.
Tighten
Tighten the adjusting lock nut to 22 Y (16 lb ft).
Recheck all the valve clearances and readjust if necessary.
