How do I determine if I need the .1 or .2 mm spacers on my cams or if I need any at all? Got my engine in boxes so the ones that were on it have been long gone.

Test assemble cam into journals in head (no rockers)....measure clearances with feeler gauges....Should be free turning with just the spec in sideplay motion/clearance.....adjust with shims as necessary to achieve specs....
Use those shims for the real (final) assembly....

Great, you guys rock! Any idea where I can find some of those spacers? Bike bandit lists that they aren't available. I need to pick up one of those manuals from you too tbpmusic.

Thanks Rod.... I always seem to assume some things I do automatically are perfectly clear (obvious) to everyone..... You and Bill will please continue to keep me straight.... :D
