Hi, guy just wandered if there is any other places where i can get different thicknesses of valve trust plate to adjust the clearance, if you have any idea except the dealer, let me know. Actually i never dealt with the dealer before, if any one knows what would be the price for them plates?

By mixing and matching with your exiting shims, I doubt you'll need more than a few
That's true get lucky some time ....:D

SHAUNE55 : I believe dia is 13mm from both of them, folks in 190rev used them and they bough a bucket with many sizes of thickness due to the average of 5K to 15K miles 16V valve clearance need to check and adjust other wise is sound like " Diesel " .

I'm on the look out for a 2.3 16v..I.ve found one but it's snowed in somewhere in Scotland............I remember working on them 20 odd years ago and they sounded like a diesel then!

Baby Benz is fine automobile and pleasure to drive specially when it getting older by the years but trust me the Cosworth 16V is much more fun, so predictable (much more with DTM tires), respectable overall body kit designed back then( 1986-1987 etc...) & without much today modern electronic functions so it's easier to DIY. I love every moment with it when both of my hands on it steering wheel. For me it's a toy car more than daily driver so it's a good reason to own two of them ???:D , Good luck to you my friend and HAPPY HOLIDAYS.:thumbsup:
