Default Valve Tappet Shims AJ27 exchange


Yes, I get the idea for the shims, the Stag has the same arrangement although the shims on a Stag are much smaller in diameter, located under the cam followers, not on top

Thank you very much for the offer to check on your supplies

Do let me know what you have for selection, and your terms for exchange / stock etc.

Glenn the Coventry Foundation is friendly with JLR but we are a completely independent organization dedicated to our mission stated on our web site www.coventryfoundation.org. While Mike Cook was supportive and fully aware of the foundation he was not involved. The foundation did rec. a huge amount of materials with the recent move of the JLR HQ and necessary downsizing of their archives our collection has been growing for years. As far as the Churchill tools you may see an older list in PDF form at www,JCNA.com in the tool loan program. We also hold factory tools by Lucas, Bosch, Genrad, SPX, Zelenda, OTC, and others.

I think part of what you are asking about are tools for other British makes, THe short answer is yes we have a ton and are hoping to see leaders from the other makes offer to help identify and catalog them. As the tools came from old dealerships (and new) they were equipped with tools for MG, Triumph, AH, and such.

As an amusing point one of the most odd tools is a coil spring holder for a Stag. It looks like a device that may have been used in 50 shades of Grey, !!!

As far as how the tool loan works the rules and terms are posted in the tool loan section of the JCNA website cited above. The program has been in effect for more than 6 years and has been reported on each year at the JCNA AGM. Hope to see you.

Here are some of the tools in pic form.

Glenn you can see many of the Other makes tools on the Foundation's web site under a donation made by Chuck Hadley--who runs a well known E type body renovation shop!
