Every 8,000 miles the valve clearance needs to be adjusted. This tool allows the removal of the shim (on top of the bucket) so that it can be replaced with that of a correct size.
The only other way is to remove the camshafts which is a difficult and long winded way to do the job.
New Shims are available but you wont know what sizes you want until the clearances have been checked and shim removed. So order shims after checking. It may be posible to exchange some shims around with those removed.
Note; The clearance wil always be out of limit, so dont let anyone tell you they have checked them and they are all ok... there fibing)
FREE SHIM SUPPLIED IS WHAT I HAVE IN STOCK, SO YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO REQUESTED SIZES. sorry!
