Shims

Recommended Posts

Hi guy's

Quick question. Do you guys ever measure your valve shims with Dial Calipers? Currently I don't have a micrometer. My dial caliper does resolution of 0.001in would i be able to get away with using them instead

A caliper is fine, thats all I use. I know mine is accurate to .001mm and thats more than enough to measure shims.

Have another question guys

If the shim calculator says I need a shim of 1.618mm and there a choice between a 1.625mm and 1.60mm which shim would be the best to use? That's the two closest shims Honda sells

Thanks

Mike

You'll probably want to decide for yourself, but note that the difference between 1.625mm and 1.60mm is about .001". I would personally error on the tighter side, but I don't think it matters which you choose.
