I dunno how many shims are there now. Since my valves and seats were cut I simply took ALL my shims, sorted them by thickness, then started setting each spring height on each head. Didn't use any fancy tool other than my trusty old vernier caliper. Obviously this is a case of Not-Perfect-Tool + Common-Sense = Acceptable Results. I built most of my engine that way.
