Has anyone ever checked their own valve clearances on the 2nd gen Sport, mine is coming up to 13k so will be due for checking at 18, I
Am under the impression a special tool is required when doing this.

Are the Swifts known for requiring shim adjustments to the valve clearances.

This I think is taken care of by the dealers on an 18k/2yr service but not sure I trust them to actually bother checking.

I thought that might be the case, is this because it's not required or something else?

If the engine sounds tappy then it's worth getting them checked. You just need a 17mm socket to turn the engine round, remove rocker cover and use a set of feeler gauges. Can't be adjusted you need new over bucket shims if the clearances are too big.

at least they are over bucket, some cars/bikes are under bucker, a right pain in the ass.

Generally the engine is fine, slight tap from cold during the winter months. I might check them at the next service as I do it myself.

My dealer advised that whilst they do check them as called for by the service schedule they have never found one that needed adjusting at the service.

 

Whether they've adjusted any separately due to a complaint of tapping is probably a different question.

Do you mean they use oil as in they burn it?

Nope it's thin to keep emissions low so it's in the service to cover their selves in case things are starting to wear with thin engine oil.

Sorry for bringing up an old thread but needing some advice.

I am wanting to fit Swift Sport cams from a 2012 model into my Jimny. I've got the sub assembly from the sport, but can't fit the head as it doesn't have an EGR valve that the Jimny needs along with individual coil packs etc.

So the easiest thing in my eyes is to fit the m16a cams and valve springs to gain the additional lift and duration over the m13 cams. I can't seem to find anyone that has done this before or the valve clearances for this engine.
