Exclamation ASAP- Valve Spring Shim Source

Boxer Nuts,

Does anyone have a valve spring shim cross reference to something commonly available here in the States?

I have checked stock everywhere, dealers, stoddards, pelican etc. & apparently no one in the country has them.

I have one more day to flog the motor before my wife & kids return from the in-laws. I need to FED-EX them for AM delivery tomorrow.

Does anyone on the list have any to spare? I need to shim 12 valves one mm from T to E specs. I know a lot of people say it isn't necessary when upgrading to E cams but I am a perfectionist (& the reground cams seem to be a little more aggressive than E's).

Thanks,

Bill

Sorry about the false alarm.

I just found Engine Builders Supply. Good guys, they had them.

Doh!

I believe they are either 1mm or .5mm. I can let you know.

Now that I think about it i don't think I ordered enough of them.

Rats.
