I know what you mean Dave ,I'm a little skeptical about the half-ring ( in the shim , I think ) installation and would like to see a good series of snapshots of that procedure including any special tool requirements . I won't have to do mine for a while and am still on the fence whether to tackle it myself or not .

Yea and I'm not even taking into consideration the likelihood that I'll bugger something up... or drop something into the engine... or break off a stud or any of a thousand other dumbass things I'm almost certain to do if I try to do it myself.

The link is broken and it seems the www.mts1200.info domain no longer exists. Anybody knows if it has been moved or gone for good?

45k

All my valves were within tolerance on my 45k mile service.
Also wanted to add the latest link.

Done my 45k mile (@48k 🙂. ) . Had to replace 5 closer shims. Used 3 new ones and swapped 2.
It runs great now. Thanks for your guide - used 3 times now!
