Where to start with shimming after complete rebuild?

Recommended Posts

Depends, if the valve seats have been cut a few times the valves will be slightly deeper into the seats/head and so you will need thinner shims. But if the head is fairly new then the stock shims should be a good place to start - if you don't have any shims to start with I'd get some from your local dealer or whatever with the understanding that you may likely need to try them and then swap them for the final shim.
