    Does this require shims? Or adjusting screws?

    If anyone knows any info on this I would appreciate greatly.

    Its a shim under bucket valve system, so you need the shims. I havent seen any that needed adjusting myself, even after a couple hundred thousand miles.

    While the 2.7 is a dohc motor, the manual says the valves are hydraulic and self-adjusting. So under normal circumstances, they will not need servicing for the life of the motor (same reason why it has a cam chain and not a belt: low maintenance).

    Hmmm, I did not see anything about the year of his truck or the motor being a 3rz. And I keep forgetting there was a 2.7 before the 2tr. Anyway, looks like this thread's info on the 2.7 will help those with the 2tr and the 3rz! Thx Chris

    The year is listed in his info. And I was unaware of the 2tr having hydraulic valve lash adjusters. :eek:

    The 2TR-FE 2.7 L 4-cylinder used in the 2005 and newer Tacoma has automatic valve lash adjustment. I don't know about the older 2.7, I do know the 2.4 L used shims.
