Smile F6A Valve Clearance

Hello, I'm new here on the forum. I have a problem with my suzuki every. It is a F6A DOHC non-turbo. I recently overhauled the engine due to excessive smoke. I have changed new pistons, new rings, new valve seals and new gaskets. After it was put back together everything is fine, the smoke has disappeared, engine is smooth except that the engine sound is louder than when it was before when idle. From my observation I am pretty sure its the valves ticking. The sound is just a ticking sound from the valves, so my best guess is that the valve clearance is not set right. My mechanic is just not really an expert on this matter. Does anybody know the correct valve clearances for intake and exhaust on a F6A engine?

Default where to find and adjust air intake

good evening to all, i have this van which they called it as latest suzuki van and i believed its a suzuki every 1999. The van has a short nose. My problem is, i noticed irritating smell from the exhaust, i dont know what engine number or engine type. There is no air mixture adjustment. Please if anyone has this, btw its an automatic 12cc. using ac cost me 10km~11km/liter and about 14km/liter without ac running 50~50 city driving (small traffic)

Thank You.
I am new here and glad to have joined.

I'd go a bit more on the exhaust....a ticking exhaust valve, is a happy exhaust valve! I'll set mine cold, at .006" (about .15mm) Exhaust clearance will gradually go down, and if that valve isn't hitting the seat to cool it, it WILL burn.
I worked on air cooled 1st generation VW Beetles for years, burned valves aren't pretty! And, can break off, causing catastrophic damage.

As you wish, I merely said what "I" would do. I doubt .002" is gonna' make it any noisier, but it sure will make a difference if the exhaust valve starts losing clearance.

An exhaust valve can burn, whether it's air, or water cooled, AND, whether it started life in Germany, or Japan. There is NO lack of relevance.
The valves still cool by contact with the seat.

BTW, How many exhaust valves does a Fighter Jet have? None! Judging by your response, I'm guessing the only work you did on fighter jets, was washing 'em, and maybe refueling.

And, if you can't spell models, or doubt, who the hell would let you work on ANYTHING!
