Assembly Lube or engine oil ?
Posted January 07, 2002 - 12:27 AM
I've got my camshafts out to change the shims following the excellent instructions I found in the technical section..it says to re-assemble using assembly lube..Struggling to find this in the U.K, getting the reply 'don't stock it never used to sell any'. Anybody know where I can buy this in the U.K and any brand names I can ask for ? Or should I follow the advice from the local shop..just use engine oil ?

But if you can find some Bel Ray molybdenum disulfide assembly lube that is what was recommended to me when I rebuilt my ’00 (the manual calls for moly disulfide lube). Since I got a fairly large (aerosol) can I used it when I reshimmed my ’01. Do they not sell Bel Ray stuff in the UK?
Also, to be safe you should put the buckets back in the holes they came out of. Hopefully you kept track of that, although I don’t know that this matters.

- Make sure the shim rotates once in place.
- Try to put the numbered side of the shim facing up. This way you can read the size in the future. Else, the number written onto the shim will get partially or fully erased by the end of the valve stem.
