Hi,

What is the valve clearance on a IH 454 with diesal engine?

my book only covers up to the 450 Diesel. And it's sayin "Valve tappet gap - 0.017 Hot" and that "Clearance of the tappets in crankcase bores should not exceed the I&T suggested limit of 0.005"

I'm not sure how well this info applies to your 454, but it's all I've got.:sorry1:

Thanks guys.

All sorted.

Amazed me how clean the top end is though - no sludge, carbon etc. Or is that normal for a diesel?

Thanks
