No adjustment is needed, you have hydraulic lash adjusters. If the valvetrain is noisy, one of them may need to be replaced or is gummed up. If you have a good OHC valve spring compresor (KD tools makes a great one that I use, I'll get the p/n off of it when I get home) you can try swapping them out yourself. They slide right out of the bores once you have removed the follower.

It is KD Tools 3087. Here's a link to an article on changing the valve guide seals on an SVO, but the same procedure applies for swapping out a bad lifter in our trucks, except you don't have to pull the valves out of the head. Just remove the follower, then pull the lash adjuster out of the head.
