    Valve Shims for Redblock.

    So its a normal service activity right? Setting the valve clearances.... Can anyone tell me the dims of the tappet shims or where to get them? I havent tried Volvo yet but guessing they are a pretty commoditised item. Chers woz

    Dont worry - I checked them all today and they were all within the .30-.40mm tolerance range. 4 valves were on .39mm but nothing under .35 so no significant seat recession. Panic over for another 30k.. LOL
