Essential when rebuilding your engine to ensure that the upper vertical bevel gear has the correct backlash and position in relation to the camshaft bevel gear, these camshaft bevel shims fit between the camshaft and the front cambox bearing (i.e. in the front cambox well).

Fitted in conjunction with the upper vertical bevel gear shim, the ideal positioning is acheved when the gears are in line and there is a just perceptible gap (backlash) between teeth.

This is for a complete set of 5 shims in the following sizes :

0.5mm/0.3mm/0.2mm/0.1mm/0.05mmNote - 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

It is common practice to measure initially with no shims fitted, then add one or multiple shims to reach the desired final positive backlash, measuring each time shims are added or subtracted  

With this shim set we also include a A11/788 camshaft back distance piece - with a cost saving over buying them separately.

Note: The A11/788 back distance piece can be bought seperately - Item 0329, as can these shims in the individual sizes.
