Default OT: Pic of the right Valve Adjustment filler gauge?

Please, can someone post a pic of the filler gauge recommended to use when adjusting the valves on the R by just removing the valve cover?
I need this info badly and search function won't help, Thanks!

Not sure what a "filler" guage is

You need the angled feeler guage:


$7.99 at Sears

I use this tool to do my car. Its very useful and speeds the process. Bent box wrenches have nothing on this bad boy.

Cost me $70 CAD,m but when you charge locals $40 a pop its paid after you do it once.

I use the straight feelers, those angled ones look interesting though....

i use the strait guage.. the angular ones are tricky cuz you cant get a good feel cuz of the andle. but its personal preference.

I also use the straight feeler gauges. Put the straight feeler gauge from the perimeter of the head and slide it toward the center of the head. Most accurate way IMHO.

use the straight head also, it costs no more than $10 at sears. Also use the over priced Snap-On tool also But like mentioned, makes it much easier and faster to do a valve adjustment, and when you charge people $50 for a valve adjustment, pays for itself in no time

Thank guys!
Yes, I already have the overpriced Snap-on tool in my toolbox. I just needed to know what was the apropiate "feeler" gauge. That bent gauge looks very adecuate. I'll pay a visit to Sears very soon.

I've never used angled feelers. Straight work fine, and you can do multiple types of car with them. Industry standard.
