Re: installing shims

hmmm, we might have to have a geelong e series drag meet heya i beta watch out. ..
If you get a mate to hold the gear up, you can get the cam in and out without having to undo the chain tensioner.... the shims go behind the lifters, simply pull each one out and put the extra shim in..
