Most of the Small bore engines have an AF------- engine number and frame number,.

If it is one of those 40-45 would seem about right

The 30-31 crossmember has a yoke for...

Engine Bearing Shims

What was the thickness of the Rod and Main bearing shims on the A& B engines when they were new?

I think we should use that as a guide when pouring new bearings
