I ask this for the simple reason that 33mm tappet shims for the 2 litre Fiat engine (as fitted to the 8-valve integrale) are getting hard to find and I need five to complete my cylinder head rebuild.

I have nearly 30 shims which are of no use to me and I'm sure there are people out there who have the same situation.

So these are the sizes I have :-

335x2, 365, 370, 388, 395, 419, 420, 422, 425, 431, 435x4, 437, 440x2, 445x2, 450, 455x4, 470x4

and these are the sizes I want :-

385, 400, 405x2, 410  (5 in all)

Any takers?  Sometime in the next two weeks would be great...

Neil

PS
I guess a similar situation exists for the 31mm 16-valve shims although those seem to be easier to get since they fit VWs too!

I have them all. However I'm in Ireland. These are readily available from Fiat, however cost about 10 euro each. we are a Fiat Dealer and generally swap shims from our stocks with what ever sizes are needed. When we run out, we just order a few spares.

Thanks for the offer Kevin.  However, I managed to get some second hand ones from John Brain at Bob Brain Developments ()a bit closer to Oxford) so thanks very much to him too.

Cheers
