valve shim help!!!!!

howdy ya'll, I recently purchased a real cheap old berg, entire top end was dickered, and have been steadily replacing and fixing the bike and engine.
I ordered a new head from somewhere in Yankee land and when it arrived it only had three out of four valve shims.
I've been looking everywhere and can send to find any shims thus size.
does anyone know where to order and buy new shims that would fit a 1996 husaberg fc600???
please help its the last little detail until I can kick this old beauty over.
also any help or comments greatly appreciated, constructive criticism I'll take as well lol.
thanks in advance!!!

So as far as I know only the latest 2 generations of Husabergs from '09 on have shim-adjusted valves in the head. What is the part you're missing? Got a pic? We'll figure it out.

valve shims, I had a used head sent to me and the seller sent me three valve shims, without knowing any better I assumed I needed them to run my bike.
I think with the help of this forum the problem is fixed, but once I get home I can send you a pic, I'm rather impressed with myself for tearing thus motor completely down

I forget now, someone on eBay tho.
ebay seems to be the quickest and most reliable source for parts.
I'm just waiting for my piston and oil filters and I can put the top end back together. get a few rides in before the snow Flys and I have to stud my tires))))
