jeffrey taw there were quite a few engine options at that time. Yours is most likely one of these:

A110 1600S (1970-1973) 1600 VB - tuned R16 TS 1565 cc 138 hp SAE (125 hp DIN)

A110 1600S (1973-1975) 1600 VC, SC - R17 TS 1605 cc 140ch SAE (126ch DIN)

Technical information is best found under the Renault engine for the R16 or the R17. Check your engine block for the plate that shows which engine your Alpine is equipped with. You should find it in the location shown in the illustration

Adjust intake valves to .008" (.20mm) and exhaust valves to .010" (.25mm) for the R16 engine. For the R17 engine the clearance is the same with the exception for the Gordini engine. On that one you adjust the exhaust valve to .012" (.30mm)

Congratulations on a great piece of automobile history. What a great vehicle.
