2002 wrx over bucket shim/ cam follower /tappet lol

Recommended Posts

Hi all I've been looking on the net for what the correct lash/ clearance should be for the cam lobe and cam follower over shim bucket , as I have found some where to by the different thickness shims ,

As it states in service manual these should be checked every 100'ooo miles , I'm on 110'ooo miles and engine is quite tappety on startup , so just wanted to check for the right clearance don't want burnt valves :-)

Also can I convert to under bucket shims , ?

For a car that is so popular I'm so surprised there is not a readily available workshop manual , how does anybody know anything about these engines , I'm not paying 117 squid for a Haynes one from America

I'm not up to speed on newage spec but I wasn't aware that newage had "shims" I thought it was only some v2sti ra's and v3/v4 sti's that had shims .

My v1 sti and my v3 uk both have hydraulic lifters (lash caps) which don't have separate shims


There's a few pdf manuals on here bud [emoji6]
