Just finished measuring for tappet shims

Grueling job made easier when it’s on the bench. Last time was in '74 in the E-Type. What a PITA when the head is on the engine and in the car.

I’m very happy to say that I only need 12 shims this time.

I’ve got my stash of shims: happy to donate to the cause!

Covered. I can use a few over, I found some (in my tool chest) from my E from 1974 and Barratt has a few in stock. The ones from my E are the only parts left from that car. The front bumper ‘cow catcher’ went for free to a club member. Kind of interesting a small bit of my old E will live on in it’s older sister.
