Have you called ANY of the cam companies about this? They will give you a quicker answer than the internet, and be correct.

I bought them from JEGS and bought:

"SPRING SHIM .015 X 1.250 Part # 249-4736-16"

You will need to look for the thicker part but hopefully this helps. If you are using the one piece seal/seat than you need to put the shims on top of the seal/seat so verify the ID will fit over. If you are using umbrella seals they go on before the valve seal.

Ok yes I do have the umbrella type seals, so the ID wouldn't matter?
