Valve Shim Exchange
« on: August 15, 2014, 08:01:55 PM »
Is anyone interested in a valve shim exchange?
I have over 100 shims in varying sizes, some more than others, some none at all as I let the local racers here use my kit at no charge and have had a run on some sizes.
If anyone has more than they need of certain sizes, or has a need to fill in their kit, feel free to post them here.
I will go through mine this weekend and see what I have an excess of and a need for.

Jim..
I have an ice cream bucket full of shims that I need to index and sort into my bin drawers. I am low on the very thin numbers and have an overflow of many others.. let me know, I will go out and measure shims tomorrow. I probably have the ones you need.

I don't have any shims, so I would be interested in buying some.

72 drawers of shims, 30 to 50 shims per drawer, I am short on shims in the 265 and lower numbers.
 ^^ those are the shim numbers that I am short on ^^
(Still haven't completely gone through the ice cream bucket full, half full still)

We got rained out this week, so I didn't get my shims back yet.
Will post my needs and excesses when I know them

I could use the same shims you are looking for. I need to order some fuel filters from ya. Guess I need to get over there and do that.
