Valve adjustment questions (archive)

does anyone have specific directions for adjusting valves. So far I understand the car is to be cold, that one should map the clearances before adjusting (allows one to use existing shims by relocateding them). I believe each cylinder is to be at top dead center to measure cam-bucket clearance. I have the pliers and valve tool, and a bucket of extra shims. What I need are the actual clearances and any other advice. Thanks
