Well Finally gettting some progress on my mod.I did not think it would be such a job to get a shim. Went to two metal shops called a bunch of sheet metal places, metal suppliers online and local. No one could give me what I wanted except one online had c110 oxygen free copper with custom cuts 45mmx45mmx2.5mm. X2 Just 5 bucks cool huh. Nope they wanted 32.00 dollars mail it. Insane cant do that.So I'm having it mailed to my daughter thenk, she can sent it to me for about 3 bucks.But I dont want to wait so I tried making one. I took copper couplings cut them in half pounded flat and lap flat. Still alittle thin didnt really like so many layers. I got an idea from cravinmild [ hes like the champion for this mod] and took my old pump ripped it apart and used the base plate.
An old astek, dont even know what kind.Pretty neat looking the new h-55 looks alot differant
So I used the base and soldered one piece of couplng on top and it is just thick enough to work.
Anyways this is what I got. Hope it works, cant finish right now got to go and install a shower in the back house the wifes giving me stink eye for sitting here at my computer.
Oh yea had to lap the pump to it had a bump in the middle.Boy that was alot of sanding my fingers are alittle raw.
