Default Honda Valve adjustment technician recommendations ?

Folks, where is the best/most reasonable place to have your valves adjusted on a Honda 4 stroke outboard in the Portland Gresham area?


Thank you very much, for any information.

It’s very interesting. Adjustable valve tappers. I’m not a Honda driver. I didn’t know they were still use adjustable tappets. As far as I know all the automotive manufacturers use hydraulic tappets. The 225 hp motor is a Pilot V6 I think. I have a new 225, will have dig deep in the tool box and find the feeler gauge. Retired automotive tech in a domestic dealership. Haven’t adjusted tappets in 20/30 years. I did have adjust the valves on a KTM 525 a few years ago.

You don't say what motor you have? Valve adjustments aren't difficult if access to the adjustments is simple. Meaning taking out 4/6/8 bolts to remove the rocker-cover and good access to the rockers. I've done my own on my 9.9 Merc kicker. You tube would have a video maybe? Simple wrenches/screwdriver and two thickness feeler gauges. Intake will be thinner than exhaust. New gasket and some silicon sealant is needed.

Our Honda CR-V is due for the check/valve adjustment at 110,000 miles. I'm debating doing it myself.

I just purchased a 22ft Seahawk with a Honda V6 225hp, I think 3.5 liter.
My comment had to do with my surprise that there are still auto manufacturers that still use adjustable valve lash adjusters vs hydraulic. Last time I time a adjusted valves on a domestic automotive engine was a Chrysler 225 slant 6.

Adjusting the valves is relatively easy. But also be aware on the larger Honda engines the camp belt tensioner needs to be adjusted periodically also. A bit more complicated but the average mechanic can do it.
