Default D Cam valve clearances

Does anyone know what the recommended valve clearances for a D cam in a B18B are please?

Are they different from the standard 0.016" - 0.018" warm settings?

Many thanks.

The clearances are for the cam regardless of the engine. D cam, and the specs for that are .016 - .018. You can go for the lower number with a warm engine with no problems. 123GT originally had a C cam.
