if you just go to a mecanic and ask what are the specks on that they should know but i think if you just tighten them down with an impact wrench till it is really tight after ou start the car it will run like **** then it will work its self out

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
