1990 era Volvo shims are identical, 1/4 the price. I personally find that a blast of compressed air works better than a magnet, to free the shims from the oil-film bond. Make sure that you have a rag over the timing chain gap, to prevent a flyaway shim from heading downwards!
So, um, Tony....looks like you'll be having a cargo jet to salvage soon? Landing with no rear gear deployed probably makes a mess, huh?
