Cab or No Cab... That's a heck of a lot of progress in 2 1/2 months time.

Grant,
I don't know why you are always making so much fun of ol' 60? Notice the beverage bottle in the clutch picture above - he must have found that along the road and picked it up just to be environmentally helpful?
All kidding aside though, congratulations all around on the work being done on the old Case. It is certainly going to be a fine tractor and something to be proud of!
All the best,
To my friends in the West!
G.

Ol' 60,
Seem to recall setting the clearance on my 20-40 Eagle about .015 (hot). You could probably open up even further if you plan on working it harder. I'll try and remember to check tomorrow.
Good luck,
G.

Ol' 60
Found in the ol' Eagle operator's book - 1/64 (.015) clearance in the Model H book and 1/32 (.031) in the older, Model F book!
Have fun lad! Say hi for me to your apprentice!
G.

I'd be more concerned with the "valve open" or "valve close" marks on the flywheel than the clearances.
You can throw off the valve timing significantly going only by rocker clearances.

Inlet opens on center
Inlet closes 30 degrees past center
Exhaust opens 35 1/2 degrees before center
Exhaust closes 20 1/2 degrees past center

adjust push rods to .005 of an inch when cold

It's not going to happen both ways. With valve seat, rocker arm and pushrod wear it will be either one or the other.
You'll be way ahead of the game if you adjust the valves by the flywheel marks regardless of what clearence you happen to wind up with.

Five thousandths has to be a typo.......
