RC8 valve clearance check, similar to LC8?

Is valve clearance check job on RC8 fairly similar to LC8? Do they use the same shims?

I have done this job on my 950 a couple of times. A friend is asking me to do the same for his RC8.

Yup, same experience, same shims. The cams on the RC8 are chain driven, so it's a little tougher to get them lined up, and you have to pull the chain tensioner.

Thx Zuber,

Sounds like more work. Anything to watch for?

Do you happen to know the specs for the valves? I don't have access to a service manual.
