valve clearance

this is my first time trying to check valve clearance and adjustments. I have the cover off and sliding the feeler gage in, but i dont understand how to determine clearance. For intake valves its 0.10-0.15. Well ive started with an 0.08 which slid in tight, but then i did a 0.10, 0.12, 0.14 and they all slid in like the 0.08. so i dont understand how to tell what the clearance is  do i just keep going until nothing slides in ?

Yes. Slide it in until you can't fit a bigger size. If your valve clearance is supposed to be .15 and a .15 will fit but a .17 will not fit, then its the right clearance
