I got my shims from Ford spare parts @ $4 per shim. Sounds like the mechanic is trying to rip you off. It is a simple boltin job... Also I had trouble finding lifter seals in Geelong so had to go to JMM in Melb to get them.

Re: Wade 1004 Cam

You only need lifter seals if you break the ones that are already in there. If you push the lifters out via the hole in the top of the rocker arm instead of pulling them out the bottom they wont break and you dont need new ones.
