i think 5-6 sounds about right.. if you got the RPD rocker gear, it removes the number of shims required, usually maximum of 2.

Hey Efbignik,

I'm currently running an RPD Rspec3 cam in my eb, running ef rockers, and I had nowhere near 6 shims, I had about 3 (Can confirm this for you if you'd like) all of the RPD team can help you out with shims too, butyea, I think that they used 3 on mine.

Let the lash determine how many shims you need.

I guess your not using ford shims here because with 6 of them the HLA doesnt even fit in the rocker arm.
