Easier Valve Lash Adjustments

Posted on April 25, 2013

ValveTrax from Engyne Metrics is designed for making diesel engine valve lash adjustments with consistent results the first time regardless of engine type or size, the company said.

The tool is a magnetic vinyl strip that is temporarily affixed around the harmonic balancer or pulley.  Manually rotating the crankshaft, alignment is done with the engine pointer matched to the proper adjustment symbol on the ValveTrax strip. ValveTrax is custom made for each specific application and can accommodate a wide variety of engines from 3 to 28 cylinders, regardless of firing order, balancer/pulley size, or crankshaft offset.
