you'll have to give more info...

...is it a d-50? assuming it is since that was the smallest truck they made that year...i don't see a 1.5 L engine listed.

try checking the emissions label under the hood for the correct engine size...or post the 8th character in the VIN.

not being a dodge dude...

...i can only be sure of a couple things. one is that the engine is a mitsubishi 2.6 liter.

the other is that this a tricky adjustment and having the complete procedure in front of you will be of great benefit so you might want to go to the local library and see if they have a service manual...or possibly purchase one of your own.

the specs for valve clearance are as follows...

intake .006 inches

exhaust .010 inches

both specs are for a COLD ENGINE
