    I am building a BP6D VVT engine for my ’94 and wondering if the club has an assortment of shims. Also if the club has the tool to change the shims without removing the cam. I just thought I would check here first as the shims from Mazda are $20 each. I need four shims 2x 0.128, 0.125 and 0.131″. I will put my original shims into the assortment if it is available. Thank you!

    This is a very specialized request…nobody I know in the club has extra shims or that special tool

     

    Might want to measure all your shims and rearrange where they are located to get them in spec…there is a tolerance

     

    Also look for alternate source for the shims besides Mazda…

    Thank you Joe! I did the shell game with the shims that I had. I had to purchase 3 others. So, I’m all set. I do have a small shim assortment of three now if anyone needs them. I had the timing belt off so, R&R the cams was no big deal. I appreciate the response!
