Intake is.006-.010 and exhaust is.008-.012. Clearance is on a COLD engine.

This engine uses shims to adjust valve clearence and you need a special tool to remove the shims and install new ones. You can get new shims from Toyota.

If the camshaft lobes are worn then the camshafts must be replaced.

This is one of those from Japan. 1991 Toyota Corolla 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual Wagon.

It comes with 12 valve 2E carburettor engine.

Please tell be the timing and the valve clearance.

Does it have rocker arms? It may be the 4ALC instead of the 4AFE.

Yes. This engine carries rocker arms. It is a 1198 cc carburettor engine.

I'll have to get my book out and check if I have this engine listed. Get back to you later.
