    Valve Clearance Spec - 1989 325i

    Whats the valve clearance suppose to be for a 1989 325i (stock cam & valve train). My Haynes manual says .012 hot or cold. I've been told the Bently says 0.10 cold. What does BMW say? Which do you use??
    Thanks
    Mike

    0.10 Cold...much better result than doing it hot

    I set mine to .012 cold and they are noisey, noisey and noisey. I would go with .010 cold as stated in the other follow-up.
