O/T 429 with unknown cam valve lash setting

Someone walked into my shop sat to see if I wanted to buy her 57 F100 gasser project. Her old boyfriend built it and she did not know a lot of intricate details about the build or internals. It ran last summer and now wouldn't start. I bought it because it looked like someone had done a decent job on building it. I got it started (the magnetic pickup in the dizzy was done) and I am trying to figure out what lash to set the valves at. I took the valve cover off and it had Ford SVO roller rockers and hardened pushrods under it. Im 99 percent certain it has a solid cam in it, I can hear the valves quite a bit under the drivers side valve cover. Any experience or ideas from anyone?
