need final answer from sage who knows- is 92 b230 a flat tappet engine 200

There is a cylindrical "bucket" tappet between valve stem and cam lobe.

More correct to say the top of the tappet holds a removable "shim" or wafer, that the lobe bears down on. Shims come in varying thicknesses for adjusting clearance at cam lobe when valve is closed.
