SOURCE: Valve clearance ?
http://www.scribd.com/doc/6853/periodic-maintenance - check this out before anything. . . its a service manual.. . .
thats an old engne but . . . if your head is milled remember yourr top dead center mark may be off. . . . so check the cams to get the real top dead mark before doing the valve clearances. . . . try 6 - 8 7- 9 . .. if its loud just go lower. . . until it sounds right. . . im not from the states but i do know alot of auto supplies have service manuals for old carss. . get a hanes manual. .. . they have practically everything. . . . .
now if you wana order a manual online this would be the link. i would advise you to get a manual . . .iv done lots of cars and i always order a manual before touching anything. just to be sure.
hope this helps

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.

When setting tappets, it has to be born inind that the valve stem wears an indentation into the face of the rocker. This prevents a really accurate tappet adjustment, so the customer is right again. If you do not posess a tappet setting dial gauge, a normal engineers dial gauge will do just as well. The procedure is the same as using your feeler gauge except that you set the dial gauge up on the cylinder head with the pointer resting on the head of the rocker. Press down fairly firmly on the rocker valve end and zero the gauge. Next lift up on the rocker and read off the clearance, from the gauge, Use a magnetic base to support your gauge and repeat the pocedure for each valve pair.
