1979 450 slc valve clearances

Hi, this is my first posting, I need to know the valve clearances for my recently bought 450 slc, 1979. It's a bit noisy and I'm hoping this will be the problem.

All V8s after 1975 (76-) have hydraulic lifters. Common problems include worn rockers, cam, and bad lifters.
