Valve Adjusting Tool

G'day fellas,

Anyone on the forum got the heads up on where to source a shim style valve adjusting tool kit to suit a 1997 LS400 non VVT? Don't seem to be able to find one in Australia but have seen Toyota valve tools on evilbay USA sites. The ones I have viewed are very ambiguous on what they will fit. The model number that is advertised by many different sites seems to be the same --SLY-88250. Also is there a source for the shims?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Thanks for the reply, I figured that the dealer would have the equipment but thought I would try the forum members first to get some ideas. Would still like to know if the fleabay item will work on the 97 LS400 non VVT motor.

I guess the old man is outdated, I always used a feeler gauge to see what shims were necessary to remove the clicking....

doing a search (which I recommend), shows this: http://www.clublexus.com/forums/ls400/370485-1uz-fe-valve-adjustment-and-my-thoughts-on-it.html

Thanks Billy for the reply, I use feeler gauges to check the gap also. What I am actually after is the tool that depresses the valve (bucket) and the tool that holds the valve bucket down allowing for the removal of the shim. It is ambiguous but the manufacturers call this tool, which comes as a two piece kit a shim style valve adjusting tool.
