I still have the burnt exhaust valve from my '74 Toyota sitting on my desk. Teenage over zealous valve adjustment being the culprit. Celica engine sounded quiet and ran great till it ate that valve!

I have always set valve gaps wider.Before hydraulic lifters I checked new Fords and found a few were too tight on one or two valves.Chevy 6 cyl were bad for burning valves because they were set tight.

In 1964 I bought a new Rambler American, the last year for the old 3 main bearing 6 cyl design. I forget the time span, not much, but to maintain the warranty I had to bring it back to the dealer to have the head torqued and valves reset. Never had before nor sense.

I don't know if their upgraded 6 which had 7 mains had that reaquirement.

I had a 61 rambler that had to have the head milled to keep a head gasket in it.I bought a 64 Rambler V8 that was a nice car.Both were well used when I bought them.
