Help - I need a 3.90mm shim. Can you still get them from Fiat or does anyone have one going spare ?

Bayless has shims in .05mm increments from 2.55mm through 5.10mm.
page 40.

I've used them before but I was rather hoping for a UK source !

You may be interested that Volvo once used similar sized shims.
Guy Croft happens to make mention of this on page 40 of his book.
But i cannot say that they do a 3.90mm shim though - still worth trying them.

sorry if this duplicates but my e mail replies all appeared to have bounced!!
have you tried a fiat dealer? those shims fit loads of fiats I'd have thought they could still be ordered obviously don't ask them about a beta as it'll send the parts guy into palpitations ask about a twin cam fiat model such as tempra 1.8 or 2.0 8valve!
actually try this part number 4152457 no promises mind! if it turns out to be the wrong part.....but I'm 90% sure it'll be right if it's wrong it's not much lost not expensive

Volvo does use 33mm shims for 740/760/240 models.I have a Volvo shim kit which does include a 3.90 shim.The kits are available online.
