Tappet Adjustment

PRICED FROM $345*+GST INCLUDING PARTS & LABOUR

An engine valve clearance adjustment (also known as a tappet adjustment) is vital to the health of your modern diesel engine.

This adjustment is often overlooked when it comes to engine maintenance; however, neglecting your valves could lead to a lot of unwanted hassles, such as loss of power, decreased fuel efficiency or even failure.

Keeping a close eye on the valve lash can alert you to a problem before it leads to hefty repair costs for your diesel engine and a lot of unplanned downtime.
