wasn't sure if this would be appropriate for repair forum or performance...
i know Treats has shims, but they seem expensive when i could buy them in higher quantities for slightly more.
I read on some older threads that MSC direct and McMastercarr are good for shims, but when i search their sites, the ID and ODs don't quite match what Treats has listed. different gauges/ thickness all seems to be available via at least MSC
I guess i can measure that crap on my own when I open the case, but i was hoping to have the shims on hand before doing so.
so: what shims will work besides Treats?
Is the ID more important than the OD so everything sits on it's respective shaft/ bearing correctly?
too small of an ID, won't fit. How big of an ID is TOO big (1-2 mm?)
Is a slightly larger/smaller OD a problem? smaller better than larger i would guess, just so the outer diameter doesn't snag on other parts
planning on taking apart the ZA50 on my maxi sport for a clutch flip & to change the pucks, then more extensive work on the magnum MKII.
I am taking my time with this, as there is so much more internally than an e50.
if i have to get the shims from Treats I will, but since i have tentative plans to do several i figured i would ask first. If they are the fail safe standard I will go with them, just wondering who has tried other shims successfully.
