you need to go to a local parts store or library and look at a chilton manual to see what the gap should be. you will need to use a feeler gauge witch you can get at a local parts house.. ldw fireold23@yahoo.com

That would be zero valve lash. You only use a feeler gauge on solid lifters.

It has nothing to do with the lifters getting use to your driving style. Lifters rarely loosen up. Lifters wear over time, thus causing the gap to widen, creating lifter clatter. On solid lifters, that is why they must be adjusted periodically. On hydraulic lifters, this is not necessary, as they automatically adjust for the gap due to wear, if they were installed and adjusted correctly in the first place.

DO NOT gap the plugs. They are factory set at .054. If you DO gap them, you will ruin the platinum coating and they will be NO GOOD!

You have to put proper gap for lifters and use marks to make sure that timing and the positions of camshafts are correct.

It has hydraulic lifters that are known to get noisy. Mazda sells a shim set that can be installed under each lifter to reduce clearance so that the lifters don't require as much pump-up travel. The lifters are located in the ends of the rocker arms, replacing or shimming them requires the removal of part of the intake plenum. You can also buy new lifters in the aftermarket for about $20. each, but there is 12 so it's not exactly cheap.

If your 1980 H D still has it's electronic ignition set the plug gap at .040 ... If some one has changed it to a point and condenser set up you need to set your plug gap at .028 and your points, if it has been converted , set at .018
