On the subject of shims, the guys who installed the new valve seats
cut them a little to deep. I had a few thou taken from the underside
of the cam followers, so that I could get shims that were thin enough.
I did take a thou off a couple of the shims on a oil stone but don't
recommend it as it takes forever.

hidden for special occasions.
