Herald 13/60 valve clearances & timing

Apologies if this is covering ground elsewhere in the forum - I can't seem to find everything I'm after, and thought it would be as well to double check what I have found.

I replaced my poor, written off Toledo with a Herald 13/60 Estate (1970) last week. She's nice and solid, but she does need a pretty thorough tune-up.

I haven't got my hands on a copy of Haynes or any other manuals yet. So, I wondered whether anyone can tell me:

1) What sized gap do I need to set the valve clearances to? (Sorry - can't find this info anywhere).
2) Do I set the timing to 9 degrees BTDC?
3) Should the points be set to 0.015"?

Many thanks for your help  :)

Cheers,

Ben

Brilliant - thanks for the info Dave and Colin.

Yes, the engine does appear to be identical to the Tolly - I've no shortage of manuals for that. Thanks for the tip about timing too. With luck it won't need changing, though I'm certain the valve clearances do. I'll know more when I get to grips with it all at the weekend.

Cheers,

Ben
