Fowler 1/2" caliper 52-230-000-0

• 0-1/2" micrometer by .001", Satin chrome finish.
• Forged steel frame
• Anvil and spindle hardened and precision ground with microlapped ends
• Clear, crisp graduations on barrel and thimble.
Diameter of measuring faces: .197"
• Flatness: .00003"
• Parallelism: .00005"
• Accuracy: .001"
• Range: 0-1/2"

The diameter of the measuring faces of this caliper =.197", which = 5mm. So if you are doing valve adjustment on 20V head[s], you may want this tool to check shim thicknesses.

works for me.... managed to get this clients 20V to the tighter side of the spec, then the looser side it had been.

Exhaust were .018"-.020", they are now much closer to the tight end with 7 between .015", and .016", and a single one @ .017" - because I didn't have another shim that was either .001", or .002" thicker then the one in there, and while a tiny bit looser, it is still .003" tighter then it was when it came to me. On the intake side - all the clearances are between .007 and .008, they ALL had been .011"


Biggest problem I need to solve - a method to mark the shims so I don't have to constantly remeasure... also.... Need to get more shims... AND a 20V shim box ;)

I tape each shim and write on the masking tape
