I would think a B would be about the same for setting up the bearings as a WD. If so you need not only shims but yhou need to file the bearing shells on the ends so you have the correct amount of cursh. That is the bearing shells should touch together a couple of thousnads before the rod cap and rod. When you reduce the amount of shims, you need to file the bearing to maintain the correct amount of "crush". Get a AC manual or copy of one and find out how to do it right. To measure the amount you have filed of the bearing I set up a dial indicator on a flat surface and run the bearing under it, two ends down, dial indicator indicating on the round "top". It is easy to measure howmuch you have removed this way. Put the bearing assembly together just finger tight and use a feeler gage to see howmany shims you need, shim it and check clearance with Plastigage, if you have to remove .002 say, take out that much in shims, and file the bearing shells to maintain the specified amount of bearing "crush" . It can take a long time to do right.
