I just built a valve shim removal tool following Rocket Scientist's drawing. It worked great after I realized it went on the inboard side, not outboard side of the cam.
After I install the new shim, I assume I rotate the engine backwards rather than slowly loosening the cam ladder bolt to reseat the cam onto the shim?
Glad it worked for you. You are correct, roll the cam lobe back into contact with the shim until there is no load on the tool, then loosen the cam ladder bolt to remove it.
