1/4 fuel line from pep boys. it comes in a coil, u have to straiten it out but it worked great.

Re: who made puch engine stud shims?

i made only two and put them on top right/bottom left studs. i don't know my measurement, i eyeballed it, left about a 1/4 inch outside the jug. the hi comp treat head holes were a little small but a little sanding made it perfect. i really like the way it turned out. a whole bunch of play became a really small amout of play.

Would you tell a noob what the stud shims are for?

Re: who made puch engine stud shims?

I looked at ace and couldn't find the right size shim... Can you post a picture of it so that I know what to look for? I really like the idea of everything sitting perfectly centered on the studs... Less airleak possibilities.
