valve lifters

hi all, I did a engine rebuild recently on a 166 2.0 V6 TB engine, it is a 12V engine with valve tappets...
Question is do I need to bleed air from them or to do a valve lifter fix that can be found on this forum?

12v doesn't have hydraulic tappets, but uses shims..

and they're always a little tappety..
