you looking for feeler gauges?

after that, a magnet and a few zip ties are essential if you ask me.

or like positive stops and a degree wheel? hot cams item# CIK-001 and their catalog can be found here http://hosting.candlcompanies.com/2009catalog.pdf

that said, I have not done a wr yet!

A manual if you don't have one.

A quality inch lb. torque wrench for the cam cap bolts... get the best one you can. If I could find one, get one that is 1/4" drive:thumbsup: Unless you have Sears or NAPA where you live, I don't know....

Get a hotcams shim kit.... you'll have more sizes than you'll ever need unless you own hondas too but you'll never run out. go to hotcams or the TT store.

moly assembly lube... any parts house.

A long 1/4" drive extension, universal (wobbly) and 8mm socket.... with this and 6 fingers you will be able to get the inner tensioner cover bolt started.

if you are actually adjusting you'll need a 1/2 rack of beer too

I thought you were specifically not supposed to use moly lube?

I thought thats what the manual called for... hmmm? I don't have the manual on me right now. I think some people claim it contaminates your clutch fibers but I never had any issues.... I'll check the manual. My bad if it's not supposed to be moly...:thumbsup:

Not supposed to use moly lube, but I have (small amounts) with no issues even with a Rekluse clutch. I usually change the oil right after the job. \

I wish I could find some thin feeler guages that would fit in the tight space for checking the clearance. Does Motion Pro make thin guages???
