How to adjust lifters...

PostPosted by Endrikatro » Wed Sep 06, 2017 11:05 am

Hello.
Long story short. I have a toyota rav4 2.2l engine 2ad-ftv 2007. We had to remove the valve cover ,removed the camshafts and than the lifters. They are 3rd generation lifters. We cleaned the inside of the lifters bleeding in diesel and than soaked in oil but did not fill with oil (prime them...if this is the correct word). The mechanic told me that these lifters are self adjustable. We mounted the camshafts,the chain and everything is ok.
But i hear ticking noise coming from the lifters. Can anyone tell me if what we did was right or wrong. Some people say that we should prime the lifters before mounting in the engine.Some say that you should not prime the lifters.

Also if anyone here knows what can I do to help these lifters to adjust.I have read that for the camshafts,you need to load the engine in 2000-3000 rpm for 20 min for oil pressure to build up at he right level. Does this system work?

Thank you.

Your really need to go to a main dealer and borrow a special tool for getting air out of the adjusters. You submerge the lifter in oil then insert a pin down the hole in the middle to lift the ball off the seat while you work the plunger through the full stroke. You could make something I guess but without dimensions it wouldn’t be easy. The tool number is SST 09276-75010

Submerge them in oil to ensure no air goes in then push the ball off the seat while working the plunger. I took this photo from the manual for you;
