Title: 33mm Valve shims wanted
Post by: pewe on 08 January, 2011, 12:04:36 PM
As other posts it's not until you renew the cylinder head and more especially the cam-box gaskets you realise the need for a supply of shims.
So I'm currently in need of the following:-
4.40 x 1, 4.50 x 1, 4.55 x 1, 4.60 x 2, 4.65 x 1, 4.70 x 2.

I have/will have 3.85 x 1 , 3.90 x 1, 3.95 x 2, 4.10 x 1 + (1). 4.15 x 2 + (2), 4.20 x (2), 4.25 x (2), 4.30 x 1, 4.35 x 1. The ones not currently available but due once I've re-shimmed are in brackets.

Anyone interested in selling/swapping shims please contact me via here or email
Based in Reading so can collect locally otherwise post.
Early replies appreciated.
Cheers, Pewe.

Thanks to the Colonel for that vv I'll try him if nothing else turns up. There are a couple of specialists locally who I'll try on Monday. Rgds, P.
