Valve Lash on 2006 Japan made CRV

I've recently purchased a 2006 CRV SE made in Japan. I wanted to set the valves as it has 140k miles. All the guys on the internet say to set it at .008 intake and. 012 exhaust. However there is a sticker on my hood that states set valve lash at .23 in and .30ex. Anybody got an insight on this. I set them at the .008 and .012 and started the engine. It had some clatter...but I'm not convinced that I'm right. The guy that owned this thing did zero maintenance to it so the engine is dirty and has that golden bake to the head which tells me they didnt do regular oil changes. So in conjunction I'm going to run a cleaner through it also...just wanted to pick someone else brain on this before I start driving . thanks

Not sure what you mean by larger. .008 inches is .2032 mm. They are just rounding to the nearest thousandth when they are converting from metric to US.
Best to use a set of metric gauges since not all Japanese engines understand US units of measures.?
