If you cannot get the specs from on line or from a service agent , generally the following apply:-
water cooled engines
inlet hot .010"--exhaust hot .012"
for air cooled engines inlet hot .012"-- exhaust hot .014"

Testimonial: "What about when the engine is cold for like a rebuild situation?"

  • Bill Boyd Aug 31, 2015

    the dimensions I gave will allow the engine to start or prestart setting cold
    as the valve stem length increases with heat the tappet clearance will decrease and as all valves expand at various rates the setting is always given as a hot setting
    set them at the .010" and .012" cold setting cold and when the engine is at operating temperature check and reset if necessary to the hot setting

    What are the valve lash specs for 2007 Honda Accord V6?

    There is a specific procedure for setting valve clearance . I highly recommend getting a repair manual for the correct specs & procedure. The engine must be at TDC with the #1 cylinder on the compression stroke , that will allow you to adjust ONLY certain valves , then you have to turn the engine one turn to TDC again only now #1 will be on the exhaust stroke & the rest of the valves can be adjusted . it's important that you know the difference between the two !
