Thanks for the excellent feedback moonshinerunner!
I am sick of being bent over every time I need to buy parts in Australia so it is good to know there is a local supplier at a reasonable price. I plan to check clearances over the Christmas break (I have a whole 2 months off )
Now I am just trying to understand how your shims have grown?? I assume the last person to do it did not allow for a clearance.
EDIT: Any chance of "renting" the removal tool from you? I could pay you the rent and postage via PayPal. I can PM you as it gets closer if you are comfortable with it.
The reason you will also require thinner shims is the valves sink (or pull up) into the head, This makes the clearance smaller and smaller until you have no clearance and that is when it starts to burn the valves.
