Download the service manual from this site. It will explain the process in detail. It will also give the specs for valve lash. The hardest part is keeping the tappet set where you want it while tightening the jam nut.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

make sure your adjusting the valves with a cold engine !!!..and make sure your adjusting them with the piston on TDC ( top dead center ) on the compression stroke !!..if you do it right ?..then you should not hear the valves..and even if you do it right..and you still hear tapping or slapping ?..this is your cam chain.

And if it IS the cam chain, get it replaced. Mine was making noise and I ignored it, then it slipped a tooth and bent both my valves. When you check the chain, it should be good and snug...
