Checking Valve Heights in Solid Lifter Heads

Checking Valve Heights in Solid Lifter Heads
I have made a simple tool to check installed valve heights in non-adjustable solid bucket cylinder heads. The tool is a short square bar with a dial indicator affixed to the end. This allows you to use the cam journal to easily center over the tips of the valves and record the valve heights before disassembling the cylinder head. By keeping the solid lifters in order, and noting the valve heights before machining the head, you assure yourself an accurate valve lash upon reassembly. This is a great time saver tool!
