best not to shim them to spec and forget about it ... check them on a regular basis to make sure there is no movement [ tighter ] if the clearances are decreasing you have valve / seat issues
keep a record of the measurements

You will also find if you use the search function, chances are, the question has already been asked several times and excellent answers are already waiting.
See the bottom of this page for examples.

i just also wanted to mention that i've had the motor apart for over a month now, by any chance do they measure up tight after the initial reinstall? Would they compress after the motor has run?
If you put the top end together using assembly lube or put plenty of oil in and around the buckets/shims......then the answer to your question is "yes". They will measure tight until you run the motor.
