valve adjustment benefits?

Please provide me with the possible benefits of having a valve adjustment performed? Will this increase mpg.,increase power, smooth a rough idle,as well decrease valve train noise? My 1998 Honda Accord 4cyl has 84,000 miles and it has had the timing belt replaced, as well as catalytic converter, spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, rotor, and airfilter. Thanks

It will do all of the above if it's out of adjustment. If you're doing it yourself, just adjust everything to the tighter end of the spectrum and you'll get a slight boost in performance. (ie if the intake clearance is 0.006" to 0.008", adjust them to 0.006"). Chances are, you don't need to do a valve adjustment, but you could take a peep in there every 30k miles if you're confident in doing it yourself.
