Hi Richard,

I'm set at .059 cold.

Rads are in and I will be leaving here in the am.

Hope this helps

If you get a chance, do a test. While the engine is still somewhat cool, try the Jakes and see how they operate. Then after the engine is up to temperature do the same test on a similar grade if possible.

I found that the cold test that the Jakes worked significantly better than after the engine was up to temperature.

Based on that I changed the clearance to .055 and realized significantly better Jake action after the engine came up to temperature.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, a good Reisling in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming:  WOO HOO, what a ride
