Hi All,

Does anyone know what the tappet gaps should be for a 823 series, single carb, 2.5 engine please?

Would they be different to 0.1" exhaust and 0.06" intake spec'ed in my 'Lancia Flaminia Shop manual'?

Just checked mine and they are more like 0.06" exhaust and 0.03" intake!!
I've re-gapped them, on both valves closed, to what the manual said and now there's an very obvious tappet clatter

Thanks

Hi Lancialulu, yes the noise does seem to go away when hot.

The version of the workshop manual that I have says the following for the engine types 813.00 - 813.03, 813.10, 823.00 - 823.02:
Aspirazione (freddo) 0.15mm - inlet, cold
Scarico (freddo) 0.25mm - exhaust, cold

Date is 24 Nov 1961.
