Exclamation Valve Clearances

I'm doing a valve check on my LT. All are fine except cylinder no 3 on the intake was a little tight. It measured .005. I pulled the bucket and it was marked 2.95 and measured 2.92 with my HF mic. On the exhaust side no 4 was loose on both valves. They measured .012 and .011 with both having a 2.800 bucket. With my math skills ( ) I came up with a 2.85 on the intake and a 3.05 bucket on the exhaust side. Any seconds on this? I only want to do it once. I know there's a lot of brains on this board........thanks..........

Re: Valve Clearances

After reading what I posted........Doh!..........I realized no 4 on the exhaust was OK except for the first valve which shows .013 clearance. After rechecking it I think I need a 2.85 on both the intake and the one exhaust valve.............

Re: Valve Clearances

Leave the exhaust alone. 2.85 or 2.90 on intake.
