Hi. Just wanted to offer up my shim removal tool in case anyone else needs one. It took me a while to find, and then had to get it from Germany (and then slightly modify it). It worked fine for holding the buckets down allowing the shims to be removed with the cam shafts etc. in place. So - if anyone needs one - let me know. I'm sure that most of us have bought a few special tools for working on the Beta - so I was wondering whether it would be worth people listing out anything a bit different - like this shim tool that I had to get. Even if it is just to detail where it was bought from, as it can take ages to hunt these things down. For me - I'd be happy to post this off as long as it was returned in the same condition.

I found it on this site: https://shop.schiminsky.de/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_3_45&products_id=2391

Hi

The LMC have a number of the special tools for the Beta, but worth considering if you need anything. I do not have a list, but happy to ask if anyone needs anything specific, though would be worth joining of course......

I've not seen that site before looks interesting. I think you are extremely generous in offering to loan out your tool, I admire your enthusiasm however I would recommend you proceed with caution and only lend to those you know very well, I've lost quite a few items over the years 'lending' to tight fisted lancisti although I hasten to add no one that's on here as far as I know! I do have several of the special tool catalogues so I can post pictures of any special tool if that's of interest and I  do have a few special  tools that I can measure etc. If anyone is ambitious enough to try to make your own.

The problem with lending tools is that everyone knows where to go to borrow them but forget where to return them.
I've never lent a tool that I didn't have to ask for it back!
These shim tools are hard to find some as already stated,be careful!

That's a very generous offer, and one for which I applaud you! I've thought for a while that this is an item that we as a forum might look into having remanufactured. Can you tell me what modification you had to make to yours to get it to work as you wished? I'd be looking at getting the tool remanufactured in high quality steel (tool steel or even carbide).

Hi

If it can be bought for 30 Euros, why go to the trouble of reinventing the wheel?
