Valve Shimtool- Toyota/Lexus Valve Adjusting Tools - SHIMTOOL
This tool helps you remove and install valve shims.
Shim Style Valve Adjustment Tool/Toyota: This unique tool has been designed to allow for easy valve adjustment on most Toyota`s overhead camshaft engines using spacer shims for valve adjustment. In operation, the tip of the pliers pushes between the spacer shim and the camshaft as the pliers are squeezed close. This action then moves the shim and its valve lifter down away from the camshaft lobe. In this down position the separate wedge tool is placed between the valve lifter ledge and the camshaft. This wedge tool then maintains a gap between the shim and the camshaft as the pliers are removed. The spacer shim can then be removed through this gap and replaced with one of the correct thickness.
Does not work with Land Cruiser 1993-1997 and Lexus LX400 1994-1997.

"Pliers" are bulky and thick, making them hard to fit in many places. Worked better when I took them apart and only used the bottom piece.
I am so glad I found this store, over the years my special tools grew legs- It is good to know that I can find what was stolen.
Fast, accurate, good price. I will return!
