Question Valve clearances

[ Asking again here for those not monitoring the Engine forums ]

I've just checked the valve clearances on my 1968 1750 and found them to be a little off spec. Inlet were all 0.016" and exhaust 0.018-0.019". Is that bad enough to do something about or should I leave well alone?

This is a UK motor and I'm assuming the cams are stock items - is it possible to check the part number with the cams in place?

Thanks

Cosmo

Those clearances sound just fine to me, or at least on par with what factory spec calls for up through the years.
