What should the valve clearances be on a '79 351W? I was going to wrap it all up tomorrow and I didnt know?

Thanks

I'm not JimN, but I know the answer. Should I answer? ;)

The engine has hydraulic lifters so there should be zero lash. Actually, if everything is set correctly, the lifter plunger should be compressed half of it's travel.
