Oh regarding pulling the cams and reinstalling make sure you follow the service manual and understand everything in it. There is a specified order to torquing the cam cap bolts (among much other very important information). As far as pulling the shims out themselves I use a magnet to pull the bucket and shim out together. The cam lobe pushes down on the bucket which pushes down on the shim which pushes down on the top of the valve. There is a section in your service manual for both valve clearance inspection, and valve clearance adjustment. The adjustment chapter will refer you to the cam removal chapter.
