How to set small block Chevy hydraulic lifters
This video gives the explanation of how to set the hydraulic lifters on a small block Chevy, this is shown with the intake manifold removed, and with my own gauge made from stainless steel heli-arc wire to verify the lifters are set at the correct gap that you want them set at which is between the .020”-.060” tolerance from the pushrod seat to the snap ring, which is what the lifters need to be set at. This method less my own verification is the standard method for setting the lifters and can be done with the intake manifold still in place. This information is pertinent for all small block Chevy engines, 283, 305, 307, 327, 350, 400, and all other small blocks Chevy's made by combining their parts.
