Hello, I am have been lurking the forum for a while and finally decided to join. I am looking to fabricate shims for rocker stands for the rocker shaft assembly on a 1957 Olds 371. I am looking for a material that will be readily available and somewhat easy to machine. I was leaning towards a copper or copper alloy, but wanted to get some other opinions. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
