source for injector adjusting shims William A. Thompson
Sorry I figured some of the grand wizards were going to answer you.
But yes I have lots of old shims here and I work on injectors just about
every day. Shims are easy to ship , just line up and stick to a piece of
sticky tape an slip in envelope. Sources are all over the place .
Hillbilly shims are at your fingertips . Those little wavy washer on the Rabbits
are great --they are spring steel . Do not use soft washers except as an experiment.
The problem comes when you are ready to select thickness' .
In stead of ordering a 40 thou -- get 2 20 thou.. I have lots of 60 thou and
80 thou. But if you need a 50 thou ? they are useless. The shim problem
was a piece of cake for me. Lots of suppliers are on the net.
Mark Shepperd : stay tuned ---I am trying to write about nozzles.
I like to keep advertising out of here so I shall send list of suppliers
PS: on the shim issue ---with new nozzles they are so easy to adjust
to a very small tolerance --- there comes the need for very thin shims.
Mine are all BOSCH.
