I'm finicky about valve tick. I'll aim for the middle. I bought a bunch of shims. Thank you.From the top half up to Maximum is the ideal. IF one winds up with a loose fitting .008" intake or .010" exhaust and You KNOW it Might be the reason for a slight tick, tick, tick that is fine.
Valve shims are only available in .05mm / .002inch increments. And most people Do Not have the proper equipment to thin those very Hard Shims and NOT Recommended at all.
I not only have to satisfy myself, but also my customers.
How finicky am I, my customers, yourself, PeteK or anyone else?
I don't mind checking them again in 7.5k miles. Now that I've gotten this far and know it's not hard to get to.
