1998 1600 vs 2005 1700 valve clearances

Does anyone know how the valve clearances compare? I have an '05 1700 but a '98 1600 service manual. From the looks of things in the manual all seems to be the same apart from the different displacement. I virtually have 0 budget now for anything. So taking it to the shop is out of the question for now. Any information is much appreciated.
Thanks,
Mitch from Southwest Washington

Thanks so much. I will add this information to the manual I have.

Excellent, thank you this is a match to the 1600. I apologise if I am a pain. Could I trouble you for the clearance of 1700 valves if a person needs to adjust them or tell me if these following values are a match?
Section 3-10 adjusting the valve clearance
Valve Clearance (cold)
Intake valve
0 - 0.04mm (0 - 0.0016 in)
Exhaust valve
0 - 0.04 mm (0 - 0.0016 in)
Thanks again for all your help.

Yes sir thank you!!!!

Sorry I was wrong. 2005 roadstar Silverado midnight, not the roadstar warrior.

Thanks again
