  • Valve adjustment

    Being that the Cordoba is the first Chrysler I've owned with a V8, I have no idea on the valve adjustment procedure. I keep finding conflicting answers when I Google it.

    there is no valve adjustment on a Cordoba. Hydraulic lifters control the valve lash with oil pressure.

      Gotcha, wasn't too sure as I kept reading conflicting answers as to when the LA engines went to hydraulic lifters.

        Many many many moons ago....in the mid 60's or earlier. IIRC, the 273 was the last LA with solids.

          Basically any V8 but 273s and Hemis '68+ had hydraulic lifters. '68 273s and '69 Hemis had solids for sure. '67-up 318s, all 340s, and all 360s had hydraulic cams from the factory.

            If you want to talk about all engines, then throw the /6 in there too.....they also had solid lifters until the late 70's. Don't really remember what year was the last for them to have solids tho and really don't care lol
