Your terminology is a little off; the lifters are not adjusted, the valves are, or rather the rocker arms. Warm up engine. Remove valve cover. Rotate engine until the timing mark on the crank pulley is lined up at TDC (0 deg). Half of the rocker arms will be loose, half each of the intake and exhaust valves. Adjust the intakes to .008 and the exhausts to .012. Next rotate the engine 1 full turn and again align the timing mark to "0". Now the other half of the valves will be loose. Adjust as before. Reinstall valve cover.

Here's the full process. It's for trucks, but procedure is the same (the procedure for the Celica appears to be missing from its section).

I would replace both guides. Those actually serve as dampers for the lashing of the chain because of the length of it.

Hope this helps,
