Default D16Z1 valve adjustment

Hey everyone,
I'm attempting to do a badly needed valve adjustment on a d16z1, but I am having a hard time finding the valve clearances anywhere online!
If anyone who knows them could post them up or even give me an idea where I can search for them I'd greatly appreciate that.

just put them to any d16 spec. adjustment from a book..
I can't remember right off the adjustment sizes to be made
but you would be perfectly fine with any d16 stock size adjustment.

goodluck

I tried adjusting it to d16z6 specs but the ticking just became louder
maybe I did something wrong.. I'll give it another go tomorrow

Thanks for the reply though

no offense & not saying your doing it wrong.
but when I didn't know how to adjust valves & when I did adjust valves
they became louder...

just make sure your putting each cylinder at TDC when adjusting that cylinders valves

all I done was pulled the car slowly while it was in gear & adjusted the valves when the rotor button was aiming towards the correct plug wire on the dizzy cap

goodluck!

I had followed a different DIY guide but with pretty much the exact same procedure as the one you posted. Considering it was my first time and I was doing it in -30 degrees Celsius, I guess it won't hurt to try it again over the weekend.

Thanks for the replies

The specs should be on the underside of the hood on a sticker, no? Mine are.
