    Good news, it has hydraulic lifters. There is nothing to adjust.

    If they are noisy, they should be replaced. Find a Honda/Acura independent garage.

    Before you invest time and money, change the oil.

    0.006-0.007 inches for the Intake.

    0.007-0.008 inches for the Exhaust.

    Only Legend and 827 have Hydraulic lifters.

    I know I'm not supposed to ask a question, but that's just plain stupid. So let's see if I can phrase this properly.

    When I see somebody ask a question like this, it makes me wonder how they know how to do this procedure in the first place, or if they think they can just do them all at once without rotating the engine in the proper sequence, and that's it.

    And yes, it's best to err on the loose side so you don't burn your valves, and this procedure should be done with the engine cold for the same reason.

    If you don't know what you are doing and adjust them too tight, the valves will burn from lack of time on the valve seat.

    Buy a book.
