Oops...!!!
If you saw the previous post about the service manual misprint "Disregard" it...I was using an online converter with my ad blocker ON causing false calculations when compared to my feeler gauges...

Sorry for any confusion...!!!

Valve Clearance: between cam and valve lifter
Standard:
Exhaust 0.17 ∼ 0.22 mm (0.0067 ∼ 0.0087 in.)
Inlet 0.10 ∼ 0.15 mm (0.0039 ∼ 0.0059 in.)

Example pics of the google calculator. correct is circled red

To remove the two bolts holding the gear & decompression mechanism on the cam... heat them up with a torch or heat gun to over 500℉ to loosen the red threadlocker
& pull the gear & mechanism out of the cam...then push the pin & spring out with a small screw driver to put into the new cam
First pic

Step one...get a small wire like 28 gauge thread it through the mechanism's pin hole of the exhaust cam "hook" (not wrap) it onto the spring to guide it through so once the pin is in place, you can pull the wire off the spring...

step two while gently pulling the wire "Just to guide (spring & pin) into the end of the cam...with a small screw driver "push" on the mechanism's pin...

So while pulling the guide wire & pushing the pin with a screw driver....the spring will guide the pin into the slot...don't pull the screw driver out...now use the screw driver under the pin to lift it into the pin hole & slide the gear with decompression mechanism lever under the pin allowing it to push the screwdriver out at the same time...

Then apply red thread locker on the threads of the cam bolts & your good to go...

red thread locker Loctite Threadlocker Red 271 from Loctite Adhesives

Hope that helps
