    Engine tapping

    The thickness of the shims were 2.50mm and there was no clearence so I'll have to go thinner?

    So had a good look today, swapped some shims about etc. The other shims I had also provided no clearence, the sound changed with different shims I believe this is where the sound is coming from. Does anyone know of a good place I could find some shims for sale?

    Starts fine, yeah thought the same is a bit strange isn't it... I'm gonna get it apart on Saturday and swap the shim over etc, I'll post if I find anything.

    Okay cool, so perhaps use a shim from my other engine?

    Reckon it would be this causing the noise in the video?

    Okay thank you, I'm planning on taking a good luck next weekend, I've got another engine spare so it may come in handy.

    Thanks for that, just wondering why the gap would get closer between the cam and the shim?

    So next thing to take off the Cams? Would it be likely to be a shim replacement?
