You need to by a special tool to adjust the valves with the cam on. The way I did it was to know the size of the shim on each cam bucket. The when the head is assembled I'd measure the clearances,...

If it sat for 3 years the first thing you might get is a new battery. A bad battery can give you a lot of misinformation. It should be at least 12.6v.

Stu, I believe his original motor was an AJ27. Trying to make an AJ26 into an AJ27 is a lot more work. I think it is cheaper to get an AJ27 rather than rebuild his AJ26. Labor and cost of gasket set.

He needs a an AJ26 for the easiest way to go. The models I mentioned are the only AJ26s. An AJ27 can be used but it will require extra work.

Also it will need to be N/A. No supercharger.
