SOURCE: Valve tappet adjustment
well, I can see ur message has been here for quite some time. Most probably you got the answer to ur request.
I just did the valve clearance on the engine of my SJ413 that has the 1000cc engine of an SJ410 :
When cold: 0.13mm Intake and 0.18mm Exhaust
Engine sounded well and worked fine after that.

There is no valve adjustment for that engine, Hydraulic lifters, You might remove the valve cover and see if you have a rocker arm loose

SOURCE: how do I adjust my
tappets are done by the rule of 9 ,ie-1 down adjust 9------- 2 down adust 7 ------3 down adjust 6 .as for timing it shouldnt need touching unless you have points and a distributor which i think this year uses a module inside the distributor cap so it should not need touching

One article that I found may assist you as well, I also included this, it it for the 2.5 I believe the same engine but in a van.
Remove the cover which gives you access to the top of the bell housing, this will allow you to open a small inspection hole which is held in place by 2 screws and gives access to the flywheel with its zero degree mark. I removed the air intake pipe coming to the engine and obviously the vee belts to allow access to the screws holding the cam belt cover in place. Once the cam belt cover is off you can see the timing mark on the cam sprocket and can line up the timing marks both on the flywheel and cam before changing the belt. I turned the engine over with a screwdriver in the ring gear, but you could also turn it over via a socket on the crank pulley. Make sure you only turn the engine in its operating direction. Once the new belt is on you should turn the engine two full turns at the flywheel and re check the timing marks, also locking the tensioner once it has settled under its own spring tension. With the belt on, re assembly is just a matter of bolting ever thing back in place. It took me about 6 hours to do this in between other jobs, but I reckon I could probably get that down to 3 or 4 if I was doing it again.
This is some one that previously has done the job with their description of how they did it.
Follow the directions closely on the down load, have a professional double check your work to insure that you have the engine timed correctly so that you do not cause any more damage.
Let me know.if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
