I have the Jones,Bowler conversion on my Vitesse and it is excellent,however no longer available.(I think Nick is machining more adapters).

I am putting together parts for converting my Herald and have a full roto setup on the bench,I am not clear with the shimming aspect,when i stripped it all down there were no shims that i could see?

I am using the Jigsaw type/Rimmers shafts using the original hub etc.

Any advice appreciated,i would have posted on CT as well but their new site is too annoying.

Hi Steve,

Sometimes there are no shims as such but there should be a small spacer on the shaft right up against the thick ring that the inboard oil seal runs on.  These spacers are (or used to be) available in 5 different sizes and only fine tuning was done with 0.003" shims.

Item 63 in the pic.  Item 64 is the shim where fitted
