The shims that go into the rocker arm prior to installing the hydraulic compensators are available in 3 different thicknesses.
There is a special tool that uses a dial micrometer to measure the preload of the rocker arm, this is the only good way to know if they are set properly.


ps In Fastlanes catalog, they are found in engine mechanical, "valve adjsut shims", then are called what I believe the correct name is "Thrust elements". They are available in 2.2mm, 1.8mm, and 1.5mm
