are you talking about the valve lash adjust shims ?
You will have to re-shim all the valve to cam clearances !!

Yes, these are the flat pieces on top of the bucket. they are the shims and now you will need a feeler guage when you put them back on. they should have a # on the bottom. if they are the same, no issue, insert them back in. use the feeler guage and see which one goes where by reading the feeler guage and match to the right cam lobe.
