Default crankshaft/flywheel shims werks engine

Can anyone tell me what size I would need or a link to show me where I can get shims to shim my flywheel further from the main bearing on my werks .21 engine so that my flywheel don't rub on the carb/engine? *note* I'm not looking for clutch bell shims, but the shim that will fit behind the collet on the shaft.
Thanks for the help.

Don't let the name throw you off. These shims will fit behind the collet.

are this only for shimming the clutch bell? or is there also ones in there with a big enough inside circumference to fit the shafts biggest part against the bearing of the engine? I have clutch bell shims but not ones big enough on the inside to fit the crankshaft against the bearing, between the collet and bearing.

Yes. It's a mixed bag with parts for both. The brass washers you see pictured will do exactly what you need. There are also thinner zinc plated washers as well.
