You know how tricky it can sometimes be to align the cams after removing them to change the shims?  Found something that makes it fairly easy. 

Put a ziptie on the top of both the intake and exhaust cams to secure the chain to the cam gear.

Remove the chain tensioner

Remove one cam at a time. You can roll it out of the way to get to the buckets. Remove them with a magnet, and it will include the shim.

The cam can then be rolled back and re-installed.
