hey guys, i reckon i've chewed out shims on one of my HLAs (because i have an alted cam i needed them). My question (as above) is, do 3.9 shims fit into a 4.0 engine because i have a spare 3.9 i can flog them from which would make it all very convenient 8-)

depends what 4L it is. there are two type the change over was late in the EB2 production run, the diameters are 14mm and 11mm i think it is.
then you have 3 or 4 different hights in each ranging from 1.8 up to about 2.4

i've got a July (pretty sure its July) 92 EB 4L... so they're all the same diameter but just different thicknesses?

they should be the 14mm ones you need. they might be a different thickness. they have the different one so that as things like a head reco are done you can remessure what the shim size should be an use the right one.

my problem is that i crunched up the washer type shims that you get with the RPD/alted cams (at least i think thats what i've done) so all i need is something to make up 1-2mm of shim-age (or whatever the ammount needed for a stg1 is - can anyone remember?)

the 1.8/1.9mm shims have 1 dot ingraved on the top so you can tell what they are without taking the lifter out. 2.4mm have 2 dots and 1.7 have no dots
