Valve shim measurement tool DIASS C.1.0108

Looking to find a valve shim micrometer to complete the factory set of tools (feeler gauge and micrometer in a wooden case). I believe it has the part number DIASS C.1.0108, but I'm nowhere near my factory tools catalogue to check this. Only interested if in perfect working condition. Please email or PM me if you have anything, thanks.

Is it C.6.0168 you're looking for? This one? I had one but sold it on eBay years ago. Be prepared - when and if they do turn up they're not exactly cheap.

I think he is looking for this one, the tool that actually measures the shims, not the gap. I've seen a couple of these over the years but have always missed out on them!

Yes, that's the one!

A note to the AlfaBB'ers of 2023: if I have not posted anything to the contrary, assume I still want one!

Mitutoyo used to make one. They appear once in a blue moon on eBay; that's where I bought mine. Very handy, BTW.

Any Mitutoyo part number I should look out for?

Alex,

All you really need is a quality micrometer (or dial indicator/dial thickness gauge) to do valve shim adjustment easily. They are readily available online and though I don't have it in front of me - I do know there was one that looks almost identical to the Alfa-spec'd one.

Mitutoyo is a great manufacturer. Starrett is also good.

Unless you're after the "factory" tool for romantic reasons

Rob,

I have an excellent Moore and Wright micrometer which does any job well enough for my needs but - as you guessed - this search is as much for romantic reasons as anything else. It's just a shame to have a hole in the wooden box where the factory tool should be. Does anyone know who made it originally? That may help the search. I'm not bothered if I discover there is a version without a DIASS number stamped on the back.

Cheers,

Alex.

And for the final solution, use this. Less expensive than the DIASS part @ ebay.

I have an SPI Japanese-made snap gauge much like Rob shows above, it was less than $20 used on ebay, is quite accurate.

I already have an excellent gauge, but the original wooden case with the feeler gauge has a big hole where the proper item should be ...
