I'm going to be doing my servicing while vehicle is in winter storage so will be looing for a shim kit also.
Removing the hubs is quite a job. I think a visual inspection of the tabs is sufficient for the exhaust hob. the bolts on the intake are the ones that back themselves out. I was thinking that i would just try to move it around to see if there was any play in the hub before going through all the extra work of dismantling the vanos.
