Intake: .15mm

If you set them and they are quiet for a while, and then start again, check the inlet, if that is out again, then the roller bearing on the inlet rocker is fucked.I have seen it happen plenty.If you get it early enough you can just change the little bearing, otherwise it kills the rocker and the cam.
