I would like to know the recommended valve clearances for an om615 (w115 200D) engine. I'm planning to do the adjustments tomorrow but I don't have an owner's or shop manual for reference. Thanks in advance!

Cold engine:
0.10 mm intake
0.30 mm exhaust

warm engine:
0.15 mm intake
0.35 exhaust

Very cold climate (-15 degrees C)
increase intake clearance by 0.05 mm

Torque for valve cover bolts: 5 Nm

Thanks, Govert70227! I'll note down the figures.

Thanks for the links, wbain!

This is the first time I'll be adjusting the valve clearances of my 115. Judging by the pictures from the link, it looks like I will be needing special tools to accomplish the task. I've adjusted the valve clearnaces on my ponton on several occasions using ordinarily available tools and had no problems. I hope my regular tools can cope with the 115 as well. :)
