If you decide to do it, just make sure you use good quality stainless steel blades and you should be ok.@GTIR-Dan wrote:to be honest i would be confident but im a little worried about using wrong feeler blade hardness
You can't really insert the cut shim the wrong way as the top is the bottom and the bottom is the top, if you get what I mean. I can't remember if the joggler cutter size is 5.5 or 6.0mm, anyone know the correct size. Oh, and if you do decide to do it yourself get one of these for a clean cut.@GTIR-Dan wrote:or inserting the shim in the bucket incorrectly and doing damage to the engine
This sounds like a road trip to Southend coming up to meet Bob, have a day by the sea while you're there.@GTIR-Dan wrote: im thinking i would rather pay someone who has done this before rather than doing damage , you close nomad
Whaaaaatt how fecking much.... Ok so not cheap but surely its a small amount to pay to make sure its a proper job? surely little bits of thin metal run a risk of floating around in your engine if your cutting bits of gauges down to fit....@wrc wrote:The right shims for a couple of quid..... lol
Unforunatly its not that simple buddy.... Nissan are over £20 each shim these days and there is long wait I think. Even bob sells them at a tenner a shim and that's cheap.
@nomad wrote:I think your reading it wrong cosmic .... this is used as a technical bodge to reshim using the old shim and a feeler gauge cut to the right mesurement with a joggler inserted so shim is back in spec ....
@nomad wrote:In an ideal world yes .... but with such long back order and price its not really viable ... the cut piece is sandwiched between so shouldnt really go a miss not unless you throw a rocker i guess....
