Did you mic the crank? Double check that the bearing is right? Never heard of shims for a connecting rod, and to be honest I'd be mad if I found out my engine shop did that.
If you don't have time to do it again, do it right the 1st time.

Don-Wi, Older tractors all used shims. Precision bearings were just not invented until ?.

These would be spun-in bearings or thick walled shells, often needing scraping to fit. Wear taken up by removing shims was a normal affair (until the journals got too oval!).

Now it is a bit naughty to be using shims with precision bearings...?

Even Ole Chevys had shims under rod caps.

You are way too young. Early 77 & 88 Olivers had shims from the factory. The rods were machined when new with a shim pack in place. When the Oliver diesel came along the shim pacs left.
