Toyota uses a "shim" to adjust the lifters, so you will have to check shim clearence on each valve.

Look for.008 intake and.010 on exhaust on cold engine.

When driving through water you may have broke an electrical connector or got water in to one that is causing a false reading.
You will have to remove and clean connectors with an eltronics cleaner.
