Hi there, I wondering how you check and adjust shim under bucket valve clearance on a over head camshaft engine. Ive all ready removed the camshaft cover and found out the manufactures valve clearance

Measure all the clearances as it is and record them down.
Whichever that is out of specs, remove the shim individually and measure the thickness of the shim.
For that particular position, add or subtract the amount of clearances you want to the shim thickness and get the correct shim for replacement.
