"inlet valves...............0.08mm

exhaust valves..........0.10mm"

and trying to figure out if my 008 and 010 are the right feeler gauges to use because i dont have the type that say 0.008 or what not unless its the same as what i have

because under the 008 it says 203mm and under the 010 it says 254mm so i am lost
