Hi Paul,

for sure they are not Lotus parts as the cam followers.

You can find them in any thickness from SJ look here:;Submit=search

but if you intend to use 104 cam on inlet only or both inlet/exhaust I would suggest to change your original tappet with the later steel type....the early iron tappets are not enough strong for the hc cams.

I should clarify that they did not grind my original shims but swapped for exact size where possible and only ground ones that were as close as possible to the correct size to minimise grinding. At least the Lotus shims sit under the buckets as opposed to on top as with the case of my Lancia. Advantage of Lancia system is you can change the shims without disturbing the camshafts.
