How to adjust solid lash adjusters on a Mopar 4.7 V8 Jeep / Dodge / Chrysler. Wanted HO camshafts.
Wanted new or used Jeep 4.7 V8 HO camshafts please contact me.
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.

2005 Jeep Liberty 3.7L noise Part II - Where's the noise?
Well this morning I got up expecting all hell to break loose, the engine
was silent compared to last night, which is nit sounds normal. Took it
over to the Local dealer in Mason Ohio to Kings Dodge-Jeep and I like their
honesty - they listen to the video from last night and said it was clearly
the chain adjuster but now it's quite.. said it was very possible that
sludge might have traveled to the front of the motor and blocked oil to the
tensioner , after it cooled off the plug fell down. So they said "Change
the oil right now" so I just did- this thing now sounds normal as it did
this morning so let's see what happens from here.
Used 3.7L engine being removed from a 2002 Jeep Liberty with 89,753 miles
We are removing the engine from this 2002 Jeep Liberty to sell. We have

4.7 dodge ram engine timing chain installed
OK, when you install the timing chain on these blocks, you have to put the
marks on the sprockets with the marks on the chain. I gave a little sample
of what I did on this engine. I had to use paint to mark the location on
the chains so I can see through the sprocket holes. It is very important to
get them installed right or you will get a computer trouble code set as
P1391 Which is defined as Interm Loss of CMP or CKP which is the CMP =cam
sensor and CKP= crank sensor. I was off by one tooth on the left cam so I
had to realign it. Always crank the engine over a few times and make sure
the marks match each other on both cams.

2002 Jeep Liberty Limited Engine Noise
Engine started and run for 15 seconds at idle, increased RPM's to 2K for 15
seconds, back to idle for 15 seconds, back to 2K RPM for 15 seconds, return
to idle and stop. This noise started as a soft ticking sound near the top
of the engine and progressed to this loud tapping/knocking sound after less
than 100 miles on a fresh oil change. Research online indicates a possible
stuck valve or valve guide, fallen rocker arm or broken valve spring.
Engine is not misfiring and runs smoothly but very noisy. CEL is off.
Opinions from Jeep mechanics wanted. Thanks!
