That could be dependent on the engine. BUT, since you didn't tell anyone, it is impossible to give you a concise answer. anyway, once you decide what engine, look it up yourself on the internet rather than take someone's word for it.
setting that clearance adjustment could be really important for engine life.

Need valve adjustment on 2010 Mercury Mariner 2.5 dohc

There is no valve adjustment. If you have excessive clearance then you have a physical problem with your engine. With an overhead cam, like the name suggests, the cam shaft is positioned over the valve. The lobes of the cam shaft push down on a puck that is between it and the valve stem. Although these pucks are shim-able, they should not have to be re-shimmed after the initial assembly.

Hi have a f22b3 1995exi was wondering if any one nows the specs on the tappet gaps .Also can u adjust them and advance the motor ?? Wanna put it in a motor carna

the valve timing on a motor is set and cannot be altered. The length of time that the valves are held open is determined by the lift of the cam and this period of time that the valves are held open determines how much mixture is allowed into the cylinder. If you advance the cam shaft you may gain extra mixture and a bit more power but on a single cam the exhaust valve timing is altered and so the advantage of the advance is lost. If you want more go from the motor get specially ground cam shafts ( hot cams) As to tappet clearance, if you have hydraulic lifters then they self adjust and thee is no clearance measurement. If you can adjust the tappets then most engines run .010" hot inlet and .012" exhaust hot Setting the tappets closer means that they open sooner but they also close sooner so the amount of mixture is reduced as the time for the mixture to enter the cylinder is reduced.

I bought a new short block for my Kohler CV730 25HP. I'm about to take the old cylinder, valves, rocker arms, push rods, etc. from my old engine and place on the new block. Unfortunately, I'm very...

turn the crank shaft and watch the relationship between the piston position and the cam followers. As the piston nears top dead centre you will see the exhaust cam follower start to move down and the inlet cam follower start to rise up. This will create a rocking motion of the cam followers at top dead centre. This is known as valve overlap assemble the motor in this position. Ensure the valve clearance is backed right off Turn the crank shaft one full revolution and you now have the compression stroke . This places the piston again on TDC and it is at this position you adjust the valve clearance. Check that clearance for the tappets as most engines run .010" and .012"tappet clearance. If the head is fitted last place the push rods in the cam followers if you cannot see the cam followers and it does the same job. When the top of the push rods reach the overlap situation it is just an extension of the cam followers.

How to adjust the valves on a 1993 toyota camry 2.2

It is not an easy process. It has cam buckets with shims under the cam lobes. You need to adjust them with different thickness shims. you need to measure the clearances then change the shims to adjust them. This may be able to be done with a special tool to hold down the valve otherwise the cam shafts need to be removed. I would reccomend checking the clearances whilst the valve bucket is at the back of the cam and if the clearance is close to that reccomended it will be ok. If they are out a long way have a Toyota specialist adjust them. Often they will not need adjusting for the life of the engine.

Valve adjustment for a Honda 350 Rancher?

I think you have a four wheeler but what year ? I was a Yamaha dealer/mechanic. Many cars have hydralic adjusters that never need adjusting. Others (my old 1981 Volva had shims) have small screws with lock nuts hiding under a cover. Whether you have one cylinder or many cylinders you have to have the cam shaft in the correct position to adjust that particuler valve. Often the cam shaft is driven by a cam chain which might have an automatic adjuster or might have to be manually adjusted. A push-rod valve engine usually needs more clearance than an overhead cam shaft with short rockers. Once a year is often enough to adjust valves unless you use the machine every day. Valve almost always get tighter as they are used. When they are too tight they leak and the exhaust which is hot can burn then you loose power. If valves happen to be loose then the cam shaft hammers them and can damage the ends ( also you hear a lot of noise). Some engines are noisey anyway so you have to have experiance to know what is what. It you run low on oil the cam or rockers can wear out and you have to replace them. Rockers and cams have a special thin hard facing and this can not really be repaired so you have to replace all the parts.

2003 yamaha 250yfm valves are noisey and started

Valves are adjusted by changing the the shims to thicker or thiner ones.
measure all the clearances and write them down, remove the cams and remove the cam buckets of the ones that need adjustment. Note the sizes of the shims removed( it is etched onto them) and replace with different thickness shims to bring them back into tollerence.

Make some marks and notes on the cam timing before removing cams,even take a photo(or that will be your next question) .
valve clearances usually close up( dont get noisy) and valve clearances wont make it smoke, so there may be more maintenance to do, like a cam chain and rings. Im not certain about a yfm, but you posted with a picture of a 2 stroke which doesnt have valves to adjust

Noise in motor

If there are no adjusting nuts , means there are shims, You will need to measure all clearances, and mark on a note pad, then remove cams, and remove cam buckets on the ones out of adjustment.
Pushing on each valve stem is a small round disc, it will have a number etched on it indicating thickness, get some more shims the sizes required to bring the clearances back in tollerence, usually only one or two sizes thicker or thinner, and put back together.
Turn motor over by hand, and check you have the right clearances
Do not mix up buckets, carefully take note of valve timing before dissassembly, lots of notes, white out pen marks on the cams, perhaps a photo or two.

Valves clearances normally tighten up, so it may be cam chain noise, even if it appears there is still some tension left

I have a 06 yfz 450 that is very hard to start how do you adjust the valves

You need to remove the valve cover and rotate the crank shaft to TDC then with a feeler gauge you check the clearance between the cam lobe and lifter bucket. There are 3 on intake cam and 2 on the exhaust. The clearance will most likely tighten as the valve seats and valve wear in. If the valve clearance gets too tight they will hang open and not seal for proper combustion. Valve clearance for my 2002 YZ426 are intake=0.10-0.15 mm (0.0039-0.0059 in) exhaust=0.20-0.25 mm (0.0079-0.0098 in) the 450 should be the same or very close
