Adjusting Valves on a Club Car Golf Cart

Does your engine have a "ticking" sound? It could mean its time for a valve adjustment.

Before starting any thing, make sure the key is off and the battery disconnected. Remove the two 10mm bolts that hold the valve cover on. Remove the valve cover. To find top dead center, remove the spark plug and insert a straw or a small dowel rod. DO NOT use a screw driver. You could possibly scratch the cylinder if you are new to this. Rotate the clutch until you are at the top of the stroke. If you don't have the correct "tool" to hold the adjuster in place, you could use a small adjustable wrench and if you absolutely have to, you can use pliers.Follow the directions in the picture.

When you are finished, inspect and clean the valve cover rubber seal, re-install the valve cover. Hook up the battery and test. Let the engine warm up completely. Take it for a drive. If you still have a "ticking" sound, repeat the steps again. If you never done it before, it may take a couple tries. Be patient and have confidence.
