THIS IS FOR A B3000 SERIES.
The manufacturer indicates that this vehicle has hydraulic lifters or adjusters and therefore does not require adjustment.
THIS IS FOR THE B2300 SERIES.
Midrange clearance is the most desirable:
Intake 0.22 - 0.28 mm (0.008 - 0.011 inch) Exhaust 0.27 - 0.33 mm (0.010 - 0.013 inch)

SOURCE: valve clearance
tappets dont squeak .. you want to hope the noise is coming from an ageing or loose fan belt .. if it is really coming from inside the valve cover then it could be a blocked oil passage that lubs the cam and its bearings ..this would soon cause a major engine failure .. other possibilities .. a bad bearing in the idler pully, water pump or alternator (a drop of oil on those can help identify the failing bearing) ... also at times the distributor can cause noise if its bearings run dry .. there is a really neat stethoscope like tool that allows you to listen to various parts and places to locat the problem .. but be careful playing around a running engine (no ties, long hair, necklaces .. if its the fan belt then it will likely make more noise as the engine is accelerating .. turning the lights on might increase or change the noise .. a leaky vacuum hose can cause a whistle like sound. .
