Kirk Engines Valve Adjustment Tool for 911/930/964/993
Valve lash adjustments on the air-cooled 911 engine can be a frustrating and time consuming experience, even for the seasoned Porsche mechanic. The combination of easily destroyed, thin feeler gauges required plus working in close, cramped quarters can make valve adjustments a dreaded procedure. Finally, there is a simpler, faster and more exacting way to adjust valve lash on all air-cooled Porsche 911 engines employing mechanical (non-hydraulic) lash adjustment. This new lash adjusting device functions by the same principle as a micrometer to achieve repeatable 0.1 mm (.004 in) lash clearance settings on every valve. The tool is made of highest quality materials; steel parts are hardened and black oxide treated while all aluminum components are anodized. From the professional mechanic to the owner/enthusiast, this easy-to-use device is made to last for many years and will prove to be a valuable addition to your 911 service tools. When compared to feeler gauges, you'll find that valve adjustments take much less time using this tool and that the lash clearances obtained are more accurate and repeatable.
