Hello, I hope the following is the information you require.
The valve clearances are, inlet 0.11mm-0.17mm, exhaust 0.14mm-0.20mm cold engine.
The cylinder head bolts are in stages.
1. Tighten 34 NM.
2. Tighten 68 NM.
3. Tighten 90 degrees.
4. Tighten 90 degrees.
The cylinder head bolts need to be a minimum diameter of 11.5mm on the thread if not they should be renewed.
Let me know if I can provide further information and I'll reply as soon as I'm able to.
Best wishes,
