Valve Shims for Toyota Diesel Engines

These shims suit many different models of Toyota diesel engines, including: 1HZ, 1HDT, 1PZ, 2LT-II, 2LTE, 3L, 1KZT, 1KZTE & others

Shims range in size from 2.35mm to 3.30mm in 0.05mm increments.

The Toyota part number as well as the Mark number are listed along with the thickness in mm in the size selector, along with the available inventory for each thickness.

Pro Tip: It is standard practice with Toyota diesel engines that use shims to set the valves to allow the engine to cool for at least a full 24 hours without being run or restarted to obtain an accurate reading of the valve clearances and be able to set them properly.

Note: If you try to rush your valve clearance measurements on an engine that has not fully cooled and allowed the metal to normalize, you will get a bad valve set with clearances that end up being all over the place (ie: you are wasting your time and will have to redo the work).

Your gaps are way too big or way too tight: If you engine requires shims that are thinner or thicker than those offered in this selection, then it is likely there is a problem elsewhere that needs to be addressed. This could range from valve seats sinking into the head or coming out of the head, or from valve stem or lifter (valve shim bucket) wear, or from some other kind of problem.

• Trying to make a valve shim thinner by grinding or machining is not a solution to your problem. Find the actual source of the problem and address it.

• Stacking shims does not work. The recess in the lifter is not deep enough to permit this, and the shim will get kicked out of place.

When a head is being repaired or replaced, the machine shop may set the valves by re-using your old shims and trimming the length of the valve stems or altering the valve seating depth slightly to obtain proper clearance. Sometimes they will ask for new shims to standardize the valve train across the board for even valve seating depths and valve stem lengths.

A note about cheap heads: It is not uncommon for poorly made or inexpensive heads to have really serious metallurgy problems which shows up in valve clearances changing quickly over time and causing performance issues. We have seen all kinds of problems from extreme premature valve seat wear, valve seats set into heads so poorly or the head casting be so bad that the compression losses from around the valve seat are causing serious engine performance issues up to the point of failure, and valve stems or lifters that are very soft and wear out quickly. Avoid using cheap heads supplied from sketchy non-reputable sources as well as those that do not offer a warranty that can be backed up.
