In Reply to: Valve adjustment Question!!! posted by blu74tii on October 31, 2000 at 14:55:22:

I'm doing a valve adjustment and I was wondering if I should replace a shim that measures -0.02mm spec or should I replace it with a bigger one... +0.05mm..

Thankz, Doug


I have never adjusted valve clearances on an M3 but have built a large number of race engines in my previous life.

What is involved with the adjustments, is it cams out ? and what are the clearances set to ?

If I know this I can probably help with your question
