Does anyone know the exact specififcations that are required for an SVT Zetec. The specs I am looking for include the clearance for the heal and the lifter, and the lift that a stock SVT cam set should be looking like. I plan on replacing my buckets to try to quiet this solid tappet machine down! [:)~]

If you can get me your existing measurements I can tell you how far you're off using a script I wrote. Otherwise you'll need to call McNews, which is probably the best bet anyway.

This is straight from the manual:
Using a suitable set of feeler gauges, measure the valve clearance.
Permitted valve clearance: inlet (0.21 - 0.29 mm)
Permitted valve clearance: exhaust (0.32 - 0.40 mm)
Rotate the crankshaft a further 180 degrees. In this instance, the measuring sequence follows the firing order 1-3-4-2.
