I thinks they are 0.3mm on the inlet and 0.5mm on the exhaust or the other way round, however the best wat to quiet em is to take the whole rocker assembly off and grind the tappet surfaces flat again, cus a small circle wares away in the tappet so even when you set the tappets the gaps too big cus of the indent, If you get me
i understand everything up to checking the actual clearance with the feelers, where do you push the feeler into? also can someon do a quick example of how to know which valve should be adjusted when, didnt really get his (youtube kid) view of it

Turn the engine over so that number 1 cylinder valves are rocking and adjust number 4 cylinder as normal BUT you can also adjust the Exhaust valve of number 3 cylinder and the Inlet valve of number 2 cylinder.
Then rotate the engine so that number 4 cylinder valves are rocking and adjust number 1 cylinder as normal and this time you can adjust the Inlet of number 3 cylinder and the Exhaust of number 2 cylinder.
It doesn't sound particularly revolutionary but it speeds the task up and minimises the amount of times you have to rotate the engine.
Oh and by the way, don't do what that turkey did in the video and have all the spark plugs out while he re-fitted the rocker cover cos if you drop one of those small bolts down a plug hole, you've got a whole mess of trouble. Take em out and replace one at a time and don't work on the engine with any of them out !
