350 small block vortec heads the lifters rattle?

If it's actually the rockers arms that are "chattering" while the engine runs, you may need to adjust the lash. If there are Solid lifters in the engine, you may want to switch to hydraulic lifters and adjust the rockers to the moment of "zero lash". Adjust them in pairs per cylinder while the lifters are in the down position (both valves closed). When you reach zero lash on the rocker arm (the pushrod will suddenly stop spinning freely in your fingers) add an additional quarter turn to the rocker arm nut to set the "pre-load" of the lifter. This just means that the pushrod will be pushed down slightly in the spring loaded hydraulic lifter and when the engine runs, the oil pressure will keep pressure on the lifter and thus the rocker arms will run silently.

How can you adjust engine speed on a kawasaki 6.5 horsepower lawn mower engine?

from the factory the speed is set and cannot be changed, unless you disconnect the coil spring. You can latch the spring somewhere on the housing at your desired speed. this speed is determined by the distance away from the idle stop. example, you can reverse the spring to move stiff lower spring up against the idle stop screw. then using a screwdriver turn the idle screw in to achieve your desired speed.

Dodge Durango. loud knock and rattle. What is a stuck lifter?

A stuck lifter is one that is gummed up with sludge. It is hydraulic and pumps oil. If it is sludged up, then it can't do what it is designed to do. Thus causing a tapping noise. Loud knock are either a rod, rod bearing, knock sensor, rocker arm, valvel spring, timing belt, or possibly just the belt tensioner. If it is a stuck lifter, the cheapest fix would be to run some engine flush in the engine, drain the oil and refill with good oil. If that works it was a stuck lifter. If not, Check with the most accessible first, pull the valve covers and check the rockers and valves. You may need to remove the intake first to access them. If it broke you will see it usually. If nothing is broke then go to the timing belt. Hope this helps.

Where do you find the clip that holds each bullet to prevent double feed to next round for a Stevens model 87p?

All magazines or clips have a "lip" at the top that retains the next round up in the magazine until the closing bolt of the weapon picks it up and shoves it into the chamber. If a particular magazine spits out more than one round at a time, it probably has a bent or damaged lip. Carefully bending the lip back into place or getting a new magazine should fix the problem. I think what you are refering to is a "tube magazine" which would be correct for the 87p.The "clip" the inquirer was talking about is a small C or U shaped spring which slips in place at the end of the tube itself just where it meets with the lifter or carrier mechanism.This spring grabs the round which is pushed to the front of the tube by spring pressure and holds it when the round ahead of it is pushed free of the tube and into the carrier mechanism and onto the lifter itself when the bolt is fully to the rear the lifter spring pushes the lifter up with the cartridge into alignment with the chamber.without the spring ,or, if it is worn out the cartrige in the tube would have its nose pushed into the path of the lifter and would jam the rifle.The spring is available from Numrich Arms or Jack First or in parts lots on E-Bay.Shootrj2003

How do you adjust the vacuum advance on a ford 302 distributor?

>you don't adjust the vaccuum advance. you adjust the distributor. then when engine is running the vaccuum advance will work automatically to the needs of the engine< As a matter of fact, the Ford vacuum advance is easily adjustable. Put a 1/8" Allen wrench through the open of the vacuum advance canister where the vacuum hose goes. Screw it in to slow the rate of advance and screw it out to speed it up. I think it works on a spring preload system.
