okay . I am sorry on my end it did not specify that . I am in Canada and do not think I have that data . I will opt out . I will continue to look for what you are asking for and come back to you if I find it . In the mean time I will open this up to other experts that may be able to help you . Thanks , Kevin .

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The valve clearances on a cold engine should be .10-.16mm for intake, .17-.23mm for exhaust.
