No shims in the stock configuration. You ground the mushroomed out end of the valve to the proper length. Far more fun. I've known times that guys would change out the motor, instead of doing a valve job. Those engines weren't known as valye burners--that title was awarded the the six cylinder Chevys. The Flat head Ford V8's would boil water very nicely though.
