Hi, my name is***** your mechanic automotive expert, and I will be happy to assist you today. In some cases, I may need more information to assist better. I apologize for any delay.

I try to be here most weekdays and some weekends. If you respond and I do not respond back right away I will do so as soon as I can.

Dear customer, do you want to know where the tappeds are or what it is the function of the gaps in the tappeds?
Thanks in advance.

No I just need to know what the gaps should be so I can order the right size cam buckets to give the correct clearances

Dear customer, i was making some research in my files to see if i have the specific size you need but i do not have it for your type of engine, so i will have to opt out to let someone else help you.
Best regards, Sebastian.
