Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
The valve clearance on this will be .004 inches on all valves with engine cold.

The way that I normally suggest doing it is to rotate the engine until one valve is fully open and set the opposite valve then rotate the engine until the other valve is fully open that you just set and set the opposite valve. Because of mechanical compression release mechanisms built into the engine anymore this is the best way to approach setting the valve clearances otherwise there is a lot of guesswork if trying to set them at TDC.
