a rag over the rear header, to prevent oil dripping on

did the mesurement, with a magnet pul out the shim

check mesure and find the correct thickness shim to the thickness you want

with the shims in position turn the engine a turn to check the lash 

if good. the spacer can go back in 

setting the gap on the spark plug 

and the cover can go back on. the rear cover can be a pita.. as the seal droppes out easy

so with the cover on, check the seal is still seated feelint with your fingers
