Default Is a 007mm. - 009mm. valve clearance fit for the '96 civic?

The valve clearance specifications in all honda service manuals arefor a cold engine. If you must adjust the clearance on a warm engine at a routine maintenance interval, use a fan to cool the engine until it’s barely warm to the touch [100 degrees F (38 degrees C)] . With the cylinder head at this temperature, adjust the valve clearance to themaximum specification. This procedure should put the clearance in the middle of the range when the engine is cold.your specs for that engine are incomplete. the way you have them written they are incorrect. Heres' the specs from the manual as the intake and exhaust settings are differentIntake 0.18-0.22mm OR .007-.009 InchesExhaust 0.23-.027 mm OR .009-.011 Inchesset them to the maximum values and you'll be good to gohope that helps
