Before I head out to perform a valve clearance adjustment, I thought I'd post a spreadsheet I put together for calculating new shim sizes required to achieve correct clearance gaps.

If there are errors, let me know and I'll update them. I tried to make it simple and easy to use. It includes a page from the Giulia 1600 Shop Manual and sheets in both mm and inches. After entering your current gaps and shim sizes, you can enter correct gaps to find out the shim sizes you will need, and/or you can enter replacement shim sizes to see what the resulting gaps will be. (Yeah, I know it's not brain surgery or even a tonsilectomy, but maybe it'll save someone a little time when they need it.)

DISCLAIMER: I MAKE NO CLAIMS OR WARRANTIES AS TO THE ACCURACY OR CORRECTNESS OF THE SPREADSHEET AND ITS CONTENTS AND ACCEPT NO LIABLITY FOR DAMAGES RESULTING FROM ITS USE. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK AND OF COURSE, MEASURE TWICE.

Cheers, Paul
