Essential when rebuilding your engine to ensure that the lower vertical bevel gear has the correct backlash and position in relation to the crankshaft bevel gear, these lower bevel shims fit between the timing case housing and the lower bevel housing
Fitted in conjunction with the timing case shim, the ideal positioning is acheved when the gears are in line and there is a just perceptable gap (backlash) between teeth.
This listing is for a single shim which we can supply in the following 4 sizes :
0.5mm//0.3mm0.2mm/0.1mm/0.05mm. Note - shim steel is now supplied in metric thicknesses, but these are offered in the nearest equivelant to the old Imperial sizes that were commonly used - i.e.
- 0.5mm = 0.021" or 21 thou (for some reason the actual thickness is 0.53mm which = 21 thou)
- 0.3mm = 0,012" or 12 thou
- 0.2mm = 0.008" or 8 thou
- 0.1mm = 0.004" or 4 thou
- 0.05mm = 0.002" or 2 thou (but see note below for these)
Put a note stating which size you require when placing the online order. We also sell complete sets of 5 shims (see listing 0326B)
Note: we do also have a few of the very thin 0.05mm thickness shims - but these have a slightly larger central hole (approx 51mm), which were of the type fitted to later DOHC Coarse Bevel housings. They are still work just as well. However, because these are limited in quantity - please email us for availability if you require one of this thickness. See picture of 5 shims to see the 0.05mm shim
Update Feb 2020: All sizes now back in stock again
