hey everyone

i've pulled some rocker gear off a head i have and i pulled the hla out and i was trying to get them shim out and i poked it out from the top and it came out with a heap of broken metal..

on close inspection it seemed to be a round retainer (im not talking about the shim).. is this normal??

No, I managed to get ones that were all metal. And once you gently inserted them they held in solid.

They looked simaler to the one pictured just without the black plastic bit was replaced with a metal bit.
