First you will need a service manual or information for this vehicle for the valve lash setting. The procedure is usually removing the valve cover( You will need a new valve cover gasket) putting the # 1 cylinder on top dead center and using wrench, screw driver or allen key,and a feeler gauge. You will need to follow the firing order when adjusting the valves. You will need a timing light to set the timing and also the timing spec. This usually involves warming engine to normal operating temp. clean harmonic balancer and mark the timing mark with some white paint loosen the the distributor hold down bolt hook up timing light and turn distributor until the timing mark on the balancer lines up with the timing mark on the timing cover then tighten the holding bolt back down. Also the timing advance has to be disabled when setting the timing and enabled when you are done. The valves should be set first then set the timing. A Haynes manual available at your local auto parts store should contain pictures and information to help you do this.
