Valve Adjustment Screw Stuck...HELP


I have done many valve adjustments, and have never run into this problem. While doing a valve adjustment on my car, one of the adjustment screw is stuck. The locking nut does come off, but the screw itself won't move. The crearance is big enough to the point that I can fit a .015 feeler in there. It's the only thing keeping me from completing the job. I tried starting the car to see if it's going to bother me, but it's ticking really bad. Any ideas?

If you have a little butane torch you can heat it up and that should do the trick.I've had a few do that to me when I was a tech at honda.

ah, good idea!


and yes, just heat the part of the rockerarm with the stuck bolt.

the heat will expand the aluminum rockaer arm and allow the steel adjusting screw to turn.

no it will not hurt anything.

...I tried to heat it up, but nothing happened. I'm thinking the adjusting screw is all stripped. I might have to replace it now. How would I go about replacing the screw?
