Re: More problems and solutions
What can I say, .020 thou was loose, .022 would not fit, and .021 felt just right.
I made my own shims because I waited two week for the bmw to get me a $21.00 6mm spacer. When it arrived the packaging and part number were right but once home I realized the packaging was open and had a .3mm shim in it. Rather than taking the shim back, 3hrs round trip, I decided to make my own.
.010 shim 6"x 3ft was $12.00, and .002 shim 6"x 3ft was $4.95. With the .021 gap I needed the .3mm at .0118+.010+.002 for a grand total of .0238, with the target of .023 to.025 this puts me near the middle of the spec.
