In Reply to: Best real world valve clearance for M30 engine? posted by TJ on November 24, 2000 at 08:36:13:
When I set out to adjust my valves, I was advised by many that the best way to set clearance is a "loose .012"". The M30 likes them slightly loose but I don't know whether the .005 mm extra is optimal or not.
Don't forget to have the engine cold!
