Does the height of the 9.48 mm shims make a difference?

I'm going to pick some up later today and the dealer says it's up to me to know what height the shims should be.

So anybody know besides the OD, what height the shims are supposed to be?

TIA!

Yeah, just read another shim thread. And it's all dependent on the height of the valve.

So I guess we need to keep a bunch of shims on hand, huh?

Glad you're still researching. Me too. Either figure out what you need and go to the dealer if they'll sell just those or get a complete shim kit ~$70

Should not need adjustments all that often. If you need to do repeated adjustments it is time for new valves. Nothing can f up your day like a valve reverting to its two piece original state.

Well, it's been 10k miles since the initial valve adjustment. I think it's due.

Still when I check the valves, will excessive wear on them be that noticeable?

they will continue to get tighter as the valves wears themselves into the head(valve seat)
