    It's time to check my valve clearance on my '96 80.  The Repair manual speaks of some special tools to get to the shims to measure the gap (SST 09248-55050).  Are these tools required or can you get by with a feeler guage and screwdriver (and a couple brewskees)?  

    Is there any place other than Toyota that sells them (for less $)?

    You don't need the SST for checking clearance. You will need it for adjustment.

    I ordered a few SST from SPX OTC directly, (800) 533-5338, and they are cheaper than my local Toyota dealer.
