Default Valve Adjustment Possibly w/o Manual

I just brought a '97 Impreza OS home. It sounds as if one valve on the left bank needs adjusting (ticking cold much less when running temperature). Parts stores are closed so I cannot purchase a manual until morning. Would anyone be willing to provide the valve adjustment specs or point me to a thread I may have missed. I searched and found some forum confusion on the '97 2.2L having hydraulic lifters or no lifters. My engine is the latter.

Is there a descriptive thread or site that has the necessary specs listed?

Thanks,
Steve

Intake 0.20mm and exhaust 0.25mm. Easy job, did not require gasket or grommet replacement.

Tried SeaFoam for the first time. Poured it slowly through the brake booster vacuum line until 1/2 can was digested by the warm engine. Shut it off for about a twenty minutes. Started it and took it for a ten mile trip. Smoked for the first couple of miles and now is quite smooth. Since the valve adjustment resulted in a quiet and smooth idle I am not certain if the SeaFoam actually did anything or is just a $9.00 snake oil.
