Anyone know if John Hinkley's 30-30 vale lash procedure can be used with LS-5 OEM hydraulics?
I know you do not want lash on hydraulics. . .
I just want to know if the procedure that John co-wrote for setting valve lash at 90 BTDC and ATDC will work for finding the base lobe on a stock GM LS-5 cam. The document seemed to imply this. . .but it was not 100% clear for big block cams.
I know I can do it the old fashioned way but I really like the fact that I can to two valves at a time with John's procedure.
I know my barn find 72 LS-5 had a lot of bubba work done to it. . .with all the evidence that I've seen. The car runs great but "puts" and "pops" out the tail pipes at idle but only after it is completely warm. While warming. . .even on normal idle. . .there are no "puts" or " pops". Hoping this is just improper valve adjustment and once everything gets hot and expands. . .the valve are being held open. Want to do a quick valve adjustment. . .and really liked the procedure mentioned.
