I am looking for 2 to 4 10mm valve shims for the Touring 2000 Alfa. Something in the lower thickness range 1.90 - 2.10mm. Let me know at my email. Thanks! Mark

I've gotten some from Hein Brand over the years. You can't use his online ordering. Email, fax, or maybe call at a time that works in Germany.

I've had several made by: Contacts Us

It can seem cumbersome to do biz in Australia, but he was really friendly and quick, plus my then-wife was Australian, so I was prone to support the "home team". Opinion of latter has changed.

Also, I've heard that "Kibblewhite" in California can make them. Tools / Components, Lash Caps | Kibblewhite Precision Machining, Inc

We should just resist whinging about the price of 10mm 102 shims at this point, and just stock up on them. Take the number of years of remaining life expectancy, and multiply times 10. That's the quantity of new shims you should add to your stock every year.
