Hi! - Questions : Can you let us know what engine this refers to ? ,How long has this engine been running like this ? what the rings made of ? , and are the rings the same width ? .

Hi again , I found this on the Mk3 TRSM website for the 7M-GE:

http://www.cygnusx1.net/Supra/Librar...aspx?S=EM&P=32

This looks like a shim ? , not sure , only worked on my 7MGTE , hope it helps . The adjusting shims should be between the cam and top of the bucket , never seen these rings on any engine before .

See : http://www.cygnusx1.net/Supra/Librar...aspx?S=EM&P=10 for position .

Yup! Man, if I had a nickel for every time I found those just shoved in some other location by an ignorant owner/mechanic.... well, I'd have about $.50 but nonetheless that's $.50 too much.

Im rebuilding the bottom end because of spun rod bearing, shown in the link at the bottom, and im getting everything cleaned and resurfaced and going most of the work brings the price down
