Default 19.5mm ID rocker shims?

I need some rocker shims for my turbo waterboxer. It's got bolt up rocker shafts and Scat rockers but the shaft is 19.5mm diameter.

I bought some Type 1 shims but they're too small and won't fit on the shafts.

Are Type 4 ones 19.5mm, before I go and buy some more?

I've got a few spare ones left over, what sizes do you need?
I doubt they are the same as T4 as everything is Imperial on the rocker assemblies.
Getting the shafts bolted up centered with a 4 thou clearance was very frustrating!

I'd forgotten I'd posted this!

I found out that the rockers are Scat Pro Comp ones and got a pack of shims from RJ Volks Performance. They're all the same thickness though.

I've not had chance to look at the side play yet but I'll be tackling it soon. In the meantime, if you've got a selection of different thickness ones that you'd be happy to sell, I'll have them off you and hopefully I can get this sorted out then.
