Another source of valve lash pads

Post by zKars » 18 Jul 2018 09:12

Someone on hybridZ from the UK mentioned a source for lash pads from a company I had not heard from before. They are Precision Shims from Australia

precisionshims.com.au

They have both flat bottom and recessed bottom (like stock) lash pads in any thickness. They have stock thicknesses in 0.5 mm steps, but will make you any thickness. They make shims as they call them for many many engines. They even have the size printed on the edge!

Now the best part. Price. They are $9 AUS each for the flat bottom. For Canadians, this is fantastic, as the dollar is near par with Auzzie land. In fact I had about a 1% advantage in exchange rate on the day I bought some. US folks will win even further with a 30%+ advantage. Anything Datsun I can buy from Australia is an easy choice for Canadians with the crazy US exchange rate.

Chris Bullen, the owner, was great to work with and very responsive. Shipping was fast (about 10 days) and three sets (36) in a padded envelope was $30.
