Valve clearance on a Vetus M4.17

It was time in FL's maintenance schedule to check/adjust the valve clearances. 

Rocker cover removed

Turning the crank to get piston one to Top Dead Centre

TDC achieved when the pulley timing mark aligned with block timing mark.

Inlet and exhaust valve can them be adjusted too 0.25mm
 Pistons 3, 4 & then 2 valves are adjusted after turning the crank 180 degrees after each pair of valves are adjusted.

Good work, it's nice to be able to do such things - saves money and keeps the brain and body active !!

Great Blog, can you remember what the valve clearance was? 0.25mm?
