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.
Enjoy

SOURCE: how to measure tappet clearance with dial gauge

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.

How do I fix the tapping sound from the engine when i accelerate after it has reached running temperature


Adjust the valve tappets (yes, they 'tap') AKA Rockers or find out why the hydraulic self adjusting tappets don't work?

They transfer the downward motion of the cams on the camshaft to depress the valves. There is a thin clearance of about 8 thousandths of an inch with the engine cold. As the engine heats the clearance reduces. Over tightening causes the valve edges to burn, too much clearance causes tapping.

Manual tappets get quieter usually as the engine heats. Hydraulic tappets gets worse as the engine heats as the oil thins.

I wish to check adjustment of tappet settings and would like to kn ow clearances i have hydraulic tappets. thank you 1966 windsor


Hydraulic tappets are normally zero lash ... not adjustable. That is why they are hydraulic ... the lifter takes up all the 'clearance' and is automatically adjustable.
