Okay, another oil pump question. My scavenger idler gear is .495 and there was no shim washer under it. Do I need to replace the gear with a .500 idler gear of just leave it as is? I can't see where there was ever a part number for a .003 shim.

Sorry nobody replied, Zeek!

I didn't realize there were shims.

Wouldn't the shim need teeth too?
