Very cool. Curious as to the thickness of the shims and did you position them on the ends of the head?

Read through some of the links in my sig line, so you will have an idea what to look for when you go to the local shops.

There is a couple diffrent views on how thick the shim stock to use, one is to use shim stock thickness equal to the amount of warp, the other is shim stock twice the anmount of warp.

The shim stock is placed at the each end of the head, about .500 under.

yes I checked out the links. I also have a lot of friends in the business and was a machinist but I worked on medical and aerospace last. I have not done auto machine work high school.
