Valve clearances...

can make a big difference in the way these cars run.

Hazet and Stahlwille make a special valve adjusting wrench for the M110 engine, as does the factory. With two of these engines, obtaining the proper tool would be a worth while investment.

The valves are always a wee bit noisy, being solid adjusters via a ball-stud, as opposed to hydraulic, but get it tuned right and the EU version twin cam can be a great engine.

The tool is not as expensive anymore as there is a new wrench that does the same thing and sells for $30 including shipping.
