Hi i had these specs somewhere at one stage.
ill try find them.
If you ring honda not even they will be able to tell you...
Its because they don't even make parts for these cars anymore its all obsolete.
All you can get is gaskets and seals...
ill have a look around and post the settings if I can find them.

Sorry to post the bad news...
How do you think I felt when i purchased a honda city turbo 2 and found out that you can't even buy a rebuild kit for it.
And I wanted to go circuit racing in it...

Seems to be hard to find info on these vehicles on the internet, but I recommend going to your local library, they usually have tune up guides for most older cars. Otherwise, mechanics have spec books such as Autodata with that sort of info, you could go to a local garage and ask, they may give you the info for free if you're lucky. Sorry I don't have the actual specs for you, good luck.

I need the tappet setting for a Honda Ballarde 160i

If your not sure then do a me 12th inlet and 15 exhaust this will cover most cooking engines but not some GT older models .Yes iam aware what the so called bar room mechanics say about my advice but so long as it has a gap then it will run .All old british leyland engines were around this figure but some ford GT engine had wide gaps and clattered but ?? and some renaults had gaps as small as 4th and 8 th but this honda comes underthe catagory of what we call in the trade cooking engines .IE to go to the shops in and the school run

How can i make a tappet clearance of honda vtec 98

You will need a "tappet gauge/blade" and then here is what you have to do:
1. open engine head, its the cover of engine where HONDA is written.
2. Now jack up and one side of the car and put the car in 4th gear
3. Start from any one side, if the tappet is not in "UP" position then rotate the wheel (the jacked up side of car) and once the tappet moves up, stop there.
4. Loosen the nut of the tappet and put the tappet blade in between the tappet gap. Now using screw driver, tighten the tappet so that blade fits snugly between the gap and without moving anything (blade and screw driver) ask a helper to tighten the tappet nut finally.
5. Repeat above procedure for each tappet.

If you do it carefully, there will be no tappet sound at all.
