On the bottom side there will be a stamp in mm's, something like 17.035 or 17.018 etc.
Can be a PITA to read. Clean the oil off then with brake cleaner and then wash them with hot water. That lets the # rust slightly in the air and makes it a little easier to read.

The valve lash buckets come in I think its 12 Diff sizes now , You need to first check your clearances and see what ones are so loose that they are making noises , Then remove those and with a micrometer measure from the inside that sits on the valve to the top where the cam rides , write that down then see how far off that is to what it takes to make the recommended valve lash for your cams then measure your new found buckets and see if you have one the size needed to get the clearances you need
