Should be on the sticker under the hood.

COLD ENGINE - Intake is .12-.17 MM or .005- to .007 inch.....Exhaust .25 to .30 MM or .010 to .012 inch....double check my metric conversion

Be sure each is checked when each cyl is at TDC. I find it easier to remove the spark plugs, so there is no compression to fight. Again....cold cyl head.
