hi, I’m working on a nice 1975 luv mostly stock truck. This forum has been very helpful along the way, some very insightful info and cool trucks!

I just finished doing a head gasket and I’m trying to figure out what the valves should be adjusted too... I have a manual coming in the mail. But while I wait I don’t want to damage the valves or anything else because I need to drive it this week!

Does anyone know what a 72-75 1.8 valve lash should be set to?

Thank you for the reply! I had them set to .006 intake .010 exhaust and it runs pretty good.
Is .004 and .006 adjusted when hot or cold?

Cool, thank you very much.

It seems like 1976-1980 trucks and parts are real common, it’s a little tough to find info online for the 72-75 trucks. Parts too seem to be a little rare.
