97-00 3.4 5VZ-FE Valve Adjustments for Dummies Worksheet

97-00 3.4 5VZ-FE Valve Adjustment for Dummies Worksheet: https://skydrive.live.com/view.aspx?...24&app=WordPdf

First off, let me give thanks to YotaTech and its members for helping this noob along with his 3.4 swap. For that, I hope to contribute to members with a worksheet and simple instructions for a valve adjustment on the 97-00 5VZ-FE. I designed it to keep things organized and OUT of my brain where stuff gets lost all of the time.

Special thanks to PismoJoe for his tech write up. http://www.yotatech.com/f128/5vz-fe-...t-tech-226997/ Please read this in conjunction with the following PDF worksheet. His deals with the head OUT of the motor and mine deals with the heads installed. My other source was a Toyota Chilton manual for year 97-00. I am not sure if this procedure is the same for the 3rz, or 2rz as indicated by Joe's write up. I am thinking this will apply to 95 and 96 but just to be safe, I only listed this as this was the year Manual I used as a reference. If someone could chime it that it does apply, I will gladly change the year on this link and the PDF so it is more clear.

For many like me that like to do things right the first time, I strongly recommend that those doing a 3.4 swap perform this along with other maintenance as the motor is OUT of the rig. Many never heard the engine run and don't know if there is a tick. That tick could cause tight clearances that would lead to a burnt valve and you would be bummed!! Chances are good the person who had the donor did not perform this adjustment as a part of the PM due to the cost and many obtained motors that have over 150,000 miles. It took this new kid only 3 hours to fix a known lifter tick. Cost was only $100 for all 12 28mm OEM exhaust shims at the Cylinder Head Supply and valve cover gaskets that most likely need to be changed anyway. http://www.cylinderheadsupply.com/ Shims are $17.00 for pack of 4!! Don't pay stealership prices. Ships in 3 days and they take PayPal

Good luck on your Valve adjustment and enjoy the simplicity of this worksheet. You can either print or edit the info into the doc using the following link. My neighbor down the street is a Yota tech and agrees that .015 exhaust clearance is good. This is what he uses along with Joe's recommendation for the same. Keep in mind that if the shims are under tolerance, subtract this amount from both the difference in tolerance and shim size. If it is greater in tolerance, then ADD the difference to the shim to decrease the gap.

Let me know if the PDF is ever a broken link like it was.
