Bedford 500

Postby leebonfield » Sun Nov 04, 2018 9:45 am

Hi there I have a 1979 Bedford bus with a 500 diesel motor. I would like to check the valve clearances but can't find a manual for this engine. Would any one on here know what the gaps for the intake and exhaust should be?

Kind regards Lee
