Hi,

They take 33mm dia shims, same ones as they use on old Alfa's and Lancia's, which can be bought from eBay or try this link Do you know what size you need? I'd suggest installing the cam, measure your old shims using a caliper micrometer, put them back in and then use a feeler gauge.

If you get stuck let me know and I'll see what I can do.

They have probably moved to the classic warehouse in Sweden , service is about a week . The parts man should know the process ...
