Try removing the bolt, you may have overtightened or stripped the threads, another reason would be that your pins have been installed in the wrong order

How do you stop your 1300 fiesta mk4 from tapping?

I assume that the tappets have been adjusted and are still tapping. Then what you need to do is to remove the rocker cover you will then see the rocker shaft held down by four bolts, undo these bolts evenly so as not to distort the shaft, turn the rocker assembly over and you will no doubt find, that the pads, which press onto the valves are indented, you will need to reface the pads with an oil stone following the existing radius of the pad. After this thoroughly clean the rockers and shaft before refitting. Ensure that the rockers are lubricated and properly located onto the push rods thenre tighten the bolts progressively, readjust tappets, refit rocker cover.

What is the intake valve tightening sequence on an 85 Chevy 305?

start in the middle go side to side and work your way front and back There is no 'sequence'. Hydrolic intake and exhaust valves are adjusted while the engine is warmed up and at idle. The rocker arm stud nut is tightened until the clacking sound associated with that valve is silenced and then add an additional 1/4 turn. If no clacking is observed with a given valve, undo the rocker arm stud nut until clacking is heard. Once clacking is heard, proceed as described above for a valve which was clacking to begin with. Continue this procedure until all valves, exhaust and intake, have been addredded. Job done. If you are dealing with a solid lifer cam, which was not a stock item in 85', again, there is no sequence and all valves adjustments are done while the engine is 'cold'. The gap between the rocker arm and valve (intake or exhaust) will be around .020" +/-. Check with Chevorlet for exact specifications. Turn the engine, using the starter motor, until the rocker arms are loose at a give cylinder and make the approate valve lash adjustment between the rocker arm and the valve. Repeat until all cylinders have been addressed. Job done.
