What engine oil and what valve clearances?

Post  mike_k5 on Wed 22 Apr - 1:41

Hey!
Yeah I know I need a manual but as I don't yet have one Im wondering if someone could tell me the answers to a few questions I have:
what oil weight to put in my engine? I'm guessing something like 75wt
What is the correct valve clearance?
And lastly what torque to do the bolts on the cylinder head up to?
Many thanks.
Mike

Oil
SAE10W/40  SE or SF
Valves
Inlet 2 to 4 thou
Exhaust 3 to 5 thou
Head bolts

I would strongly advise you to buy a Haynes manual, they are cheap & readily available on eBay
