40 Forevers Later,
Engine oil and filter changed, fuel pump filter changed, , stator wiring unsoldered, moved behind the water hose and resolderd and the valve clearances set (only one was out of spec).
If nothing else I now have a pretty good assortment of shims (and used buckets) courtesy of eBay and a fancy schmancy Mitutoyo digital caliper. Whoo hoo!
After much screwing around, I finally decided the easiest way to do this is just pull the cam chain tensioner, pull both cams, pull the bucket out with a magnet, change the shim and then reinstall the cams and tensioner.
Oh, I can just pull one cam and easy peasy, I'm so clever this is a real time saver no wonder they pay me the big bucks but I still don't see the groupies lining up at the front door there must be some sort of mix up and nope, it just kept driving me crazy until I finally gave in and pulled the other cam.
Other than a drooling countershaft sprocket seal which is a project for another time the old girl is done.
