SOURCE: Engine tappet clearances
According to http://freespace.virgin.net/tommy.sandham/databook.htm# Rocker Adjustment, the cold clearance is .008" intake/.018" exhaust in the non-GT 1500cc, and .012" intake/.022 exhaust on the GT. Sweet little car!!!

0.10 - 0.15mm inlet
0.18 - 0.23mm exhaust
but you must be carefull because the top of the valve seat becomes concave from wear, a feeler guage will not give the most accurate reading, hope i have been of some hel

check flow through heater hoses and fittings these tend to block up also hoses on LPG convertor
flush out with garden hose indivdually to find which is blocked
