Question about 1997 Lada Niva
We do not have LADA's in the USA, so we have no data on them, we are based in California, USA. Sorry

There is a special set of tools for setting lash. but you can use point 2 and point 15 millimeter feeler gauges, although the better method is dial indicator calibrated in millimeters.
If you do not mind russian, the procedure is here:
A quick translation of relevent info because they also show how to set tensioners of the timing chain at the top:
At the bottom of that url page is a table for temperature corrections, the values mentioned are for 20 degrees C temperature of engine.
Cylinder one is at the front of the engine, and valves are numbered 1-8 from front as well.
Valves 2-3-6-7 are the exhaust valves and need to be adjusted to point 15 millimeter lash.
Valves 1-4-5-8 are the intake valves and are set to point 20 millimeter.
The cam lobe needs to be on the heel of the cam, but the instructions on the url indicate it can be done by starting with the egnine timig marks aligned as shown in the images. Initially 1-2-3-5 are adjusted Then the crankshaft is turned over one revolution so valves 4-6-7-8 can be adjusted- but double check to make sure none of the followers are on the ramps of the lobes. as my translation may not be completely accurate.
The torque for the locknut should be 101Newton/Meters to 125 newton /meters
