DOHC valve shim table/spreadsheet?

Recommended Posts

I'd like to have a list of available sizes, but it's surprisingly hard to find online.  Best I can see so far is on autozone, but it's a bunch of gifs.  Does anyone have it in some more friendly (and printable) form i.e. spreadsheet or pdf?

The thicknesses are shown as a comment in the OE catalog. Although it looks like comments aren't displayed on parts.subaru.com

 

But: http://opposedforces.com/parts/legacy/en_b11/type_14/engine/valve_mechanism/

 

Now, as I recall, many of the part numbers aren't available anymore, and supersede to the size above or below, so watch that (might be worth paying markup to order at a local dealer to verify that and be able to return if they muck it up).

Make sure you are 100% positive on the size you need. 10 out of 10 tech's at the dealer level according to my dealer parts guy get it wrong the first time, and most get it wrong the second time too. Math..... it's a problem.

Not around here, it isn't.  But I'll be on the lookout.

On EZ30s I grind the back side of the shim which doesn’t contact the cam. 

I quit working on EJ25Ds since I started doing that - is there a reason that would be less effective on those than EZs?

Yea, the techs I worked with rarely even tried the math, but we stocked a pretty good selection so they could trial and error to their hearts content.
