Hi, sorry for the delay in geting back.
Actually you should have used this link to reply so that notification would be sent to me and I will get back to you once I am online.
Posting a new question might get lost or delay in replies due to the overhelming number of questions coming in.
Blackop555 reposted the question here so that I would be notified.
0.5 mm is quite a lot of clearance. I believe it is 0.05 mm out of specs.
Since it is out of specs, it would be best to get the shim replaced to get the clearance to specs. Prior to doing so, check that the cam lobes are smooth and no abnormal wear or roughness are present.
