Given the small tolerences involved between a valve being "in spec" or "out of spec", I want to purchase some high quality feeler guages. For this sort of job I want to stay away from bagin basement ( a/k/a Harbor Freight) tools. Any recommendations ? How about Snap-On Tools brand ? Mike700 / Oak Park, IL :D

Mike,

I suggest a GO/NO-GO gage set. Very convenient because a given "blade" has both the GO and the NO-GO thickness. See an example here:

This is #2424 in the KD line -- I think Proto, Snap-On and (maybe) Sears carries them also.

Good Luck...!

I agree that a go-no go set is the right tool. But to beat a dead horse I suggest measuring the gauges with a micrometer to check for any manufacturing errors. I have found great discrepancies.
