    I've got about 32 tappets from blown motors. They always come in handy.

    And then when you measure them with a dial indicator, they arent even close to the number printed on them.

    I switched to measuring them when I did the math based on the stamp and still had to pull the cams and readjust.

    i use a 2" mic with the 1" standard or a set of digital vernier calipers with a 1" standard then write on each with a paint pen for quick reference!

    The SVT tappet skirts are exactly 1" tall, so I imagine a 2" micrometer should do the trick.
