go to workshop...don't try it at home...!! it will make your car no power and your tappet and locker arm will spoil.that day i went to workshop with my friend to adjust the tappet in maluri,kl. but the fellow said that is can't adjust coz this and that....need to overhaul the engine top.so that i don't give a damn and go out to the shop.....there are no much mechanic want to do that coz only RM10-RM15....
they rather "chop" you higher price....gud luck.

without proper owner service manual.. you'll never know the optimum adjustments for your tappets.

get it done from a specialist.. and if you are in england.. i understand labour cost will be a bomb.

yeah.. this is what i am talking about.. the service manual.
but must have filler gauge tool lor..

FYI, in most modern mitsu engines.. it is auto lash adjuster already.. no need adjustments.

vr true... newer cars nowadays have all sorts of variable valve timing, electronic valve control system and so on... adjusting tappets only for older engines without such hightech gadgets....
