Damn Ford Spares!

Would you believe I just paid over $100 for a sump gasket and rocker cover gasket? Yeah, well I did. How do they justify that for a couple of fuc#en pieces of rubber?

I was going to keep this a secret until mod day but I can't... I got a Wade regrind 1004 114 and they had no shims. Apparently I need double than you normally would according to Wade. The Ford guys had none and said they didn't stock them either.

So I guess the new cam is out the window? To make matters worse I am working at 12 until 5pm today so any chance of getting them is also gone =(

Anyway, rant over...............

Re: Damn Ford Spares!

cant you get shims anywhere? Repco or something. When I had my cam/rocker troubles in my XF im positive the mechanic got them from repco.

Re: Damn Ford Spares!

You don't need shims, just a packet of washers.
The washers you need, measure 0.9mm x 10mm.
You simply space the original shim with enough washers to take up the clearance.

It sits between the shim and rocker body.
