kyosho has 5x7 shims, they come in .1 .2 and .3 thick
as long as you use this to space the 5x8 bearings it will be fine!
serpent and xray have easy instructions on how to assemble properly
the centax and also the theory regarding the effects of gap, endplay, tension
shoe, and weights!

I also use the kyosho shims for this. They work great and come in the exact sizes you need.

I'm actually using a 2mm thick 5x7 Schumacher spacer, that's used in their touring car hubs between wheel bearings and then I have to add some 0.1mm shims to get it perfect. Since I put the shims on the flywheel side of the 2mm spacer, they don't have to be small OD and I use normal clutch shims for that.

I like this solution ! I am pretty sure I have a similar 2mm shim in my spare parts.

i was showed by a good man to use the thrust bearing shim, is has worked for me. i believe it does translate into more heat build up in the bearing tho. because the bearings seem to need more maint. and replacing

thats just my 2 cent

Inside start with 1.18 thrust bearing shim,then just add smaller shims untill endgap is0.10, remember inside shims change only endgap not clutchgap,to get clutchgap take all iside bearings and shims out.Put bell and thrustbearing on onlythen measure gap holding bell against clutch shoe, say gap is0.90 then add 0.20 shims this will give you 0.70 clutch gap, then its just testing spring nut to determain engagement smoothness or sudden. Easy Peasy (NOT)

Do you use the out side bearing, the one by the thrust bearing when setting clutch gap?

Also are the bearing 5x8x2.5
