Question about 1980 Toyota Corolla
It will be the same as for the 1200 on any other Toyota, i.e. Pulsar etc. If you have 10 thou on the intake and 13 thou on the exhaust set while hot, you are withing range.
We used to say a ticking tappet is a happy tappet, so don't try to eliminate all noise from the tappets, just set them so they don't kill all conversation in the cab.

SOURCE: tappet problem
the check prosidure requires you engine be cold engine at top dead center at #1 cylinder and cams timing markes aligned to markes. check only intake and exaust lifters with lobes in the released position. intake is .15-.25mm and exaust is .25-.35 mm. rotate the engine 180deg. to check the remaining cylinders. if exsesive play is exsperianced. You must remove cam shafts, and add a new shim to remove the clearence. this includes the timing chain.most engine machine shops have these shims.really suggest you go online for a sevice manule. you can ruin this engine if not performed properly. This is a zero clearence engine! (no clearence between valves and pistons.) any more questions i can help you with just send to my e mail.

Hello Jeremy, Maybe they should be set at .020" intake and .030" exhaust. You might have them set 10 times too wide.
