The real question is on the rods... I have yet to see the point of the shims if I am going to be running the crap out of this tractor. (I will be mowing in front of the house for an hour or two a week for several months out of the year). I have also been told the modern bearings (Clevite or the like) are much harder than orginal. The shims seem like a micky mouse way to build the thing. Should I really use the shims on the rods or should I have the rods re-machined to round (right now they are about .006 shorter top to bottom)?

Has any one out there really used one of these tractors enough to need to pull a shim out?

P.S. I found what the problem is with my trying to post to this board. You can't use words shi* or even pis* (as in to take a leak.... ) It will reject your post and not tell you why....

Just take the rods to where you had the block line bored and have them remachined to where the shims are not needed. I have had this done a two engines that I changed to a full pressure systems to oil the rods thru the crank rather than the spray on the rods from the cam.
