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

This engine uses shims to adjust valve clearance 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.

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