Q: Valve Adjustment
I am about ready to put my engine back together but I can not find any information how much to tighten the valves.
A: The valve adjustment on a STOCK Pontiac is straight forward.Tighten the lock nuts to 20 foot pounds and your are done.Pontiac made it nice and easy.Even with the aftermarket cam I had in my 1967 400 I used this spec and had no problem for the 10 years I drove the car after a rebuild.
