I Just picked up a 1965 CJ5 willy's with a 4CYL. After rewiring the thing, and installing a new fuel tank. I got to the point of starting the little beast. It fired right up and runs great. There is however alot of valve clatter. I pulled the valve cover to take a look. It has a huge amount of valve lash. Can anybody tell me what the correct lash is?
Thank you!!!

Check this out.

Hurricane Engine Specs on The Jeep CJ3B Page

If its the same engine its intake .018 and exhaust .016.

I just found that site and despite the name there isn't porn or anything on there.
