The 190E 2.3 16V is the only MB engine in the USA that had valve adjustment shims.

They range in thickness from 2.5-3.4MM

What intervals are the lash pads? What is the diameter of the lash pads? Maybe some part numbers?

Is there a pattern with the part number?

Im looking for lash pads that are about 25mm in diameter. Any ideas, I can measure them exactly, but it will take me a week or so to get to it.

Actually I measured them as best as I could it looks like 33mm diameter and 2.6mm thick or so.

Maybe a 928 Porsche?

I have limited it down to BMW E30 M3 lash pads or 240 Volvo lash pads (valve shims).

BMWs have a slightly convex top on the shim, to aid in spinning, but the camshaft is slightly concave so I hear on

My brother got a digital camera for christmas so I am going to take a picture of my heads so you can see what I am talking about.

EDIT: my pictures are too big to attach. I can email them to you MB DOC.
