How to adjust solid lash adjusters on a Mopar 4.7 V8 Jeep / Dodge / Chrysler.
While rebuilding my Jeep Grand Cherokee LTD I decided to also install solid
valve lash adjusters.
I heard the 4.7 has a problem with rockers falling of and I hope this will
prevent this from happening.
I am told if installed right there will be a lot less ticking of the
A solid lifter valve-train is more consistent opens to a greater extent,
and closes faster than a hydraulic
setup. This translates into better control of the valve train, as well as
more duration spent at higher flow valve lifts I will also have better
valve control in the higher RPM range.
I also installed Comp Cams high performance beehive valve springs and I
hope this is a winning combination.
If there is anything you would like to view on my site about cars feel free
to ask and I will consider showing it.
Nick at Air-Ram Performance has been great supplying parts and advice. His
prices are very competitive and he shipped everything to Australia for me.
Check out his website here http://www.airram.com/
Also check my pictures on my Google+ of the Jeep project.
I purchased a better set of feeler gauges after filming this and re
adjusted the gaps in the same manner but now the gap is between 0.0015" and
I believe the closer you can get the gap to the minimum spacing the longer
before having to re-adjust.

Today I started the jeep project engine for the first time.
I do all and everything on the cars myself and this Jeep is a personal
I always lubricate all engine parts with Motor Honey but if possible I also
use a pump and prime the engine with oil before start up.
Also make sure to prime the fuel system by running the fuel pump and
letting air out of the valve on the right side of the engine,
The valve looks like a large tire valve and has a cap on it. I am very
happy it started straight away.
Next job is to install the custom 3 inch system and I will load a clip of
it running after it is finished in a few days.
Let me know if you have any questions about this project or other
mechanical problems and I will do my best to help you out.
I also have pictures of the project on Google+ just look for Rik Bor.
NOTE: Since my engine has a few modifications and now has high compression
I was shocked how much it detonated.
The PCM was running this engine as if it was stock so I had to reset the
PCM to factory settings.
Resetting PCM instructions : 1 Disconect the positive terminal and earth it
out on the body for 30 seconds then reconect it. 2 Turn on the ignition but
do not start engine. 3 Turn headlights on then off. 3 Turn of the ignition
Your PCM is now reset to factory settings and will start learning again.

Dodge Dakota Coolant Leak Repair - Including Bypass Hose, Thermostat, Water Pump, etc.
To get to what turned out to be a Thermostat leak we had to remove the
The Serpentine belt, the fan, the Air Conditioning Compressor, the
Alternator and the A/C and Alternator Bracket.
This way you can easily access the bypass hose, the thermostat housing, and
the upper heater hose (or otherwise called the heater to engine hose).
This also gives you free access to the water pump if you were going to
replace it. This is actually the easiest way to access the water pump as
opposed to the way the service manual describes removing it (without
removing the A/C and Alternator bracket).
However, after doing the job we discovered a second leak on the lower
heater hose (or the heater to water pump return hose). Which also needed
to be corrected.
