Hi and greetings from Scotland.

I have a Baja that i bought recently and am in the process of sorting out all the problems caused by the previous owner (many many things to be sorted!)

I have been adjusting the valves and am having an issue with the exhaust valve on cylinder 2 all the other valve adjust nicely but i can get no clearance on the exhaust valve on number two.

I have the tappet nut and adjuster turned all the way out but still have no clearance.

Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Stu.

Unfortunatly thats usually a sign of a worn valve seat. THe valve sinks deeper in the head. If its had a valve job recently, they might have cut the seat too deep. Have you tried shimming the rocker shaft?

If you look you will see the rocker hitting the valve keeper.
