I'm trying to only provide helpful info in my rambling... but I've been careless so I need to be clear about the tapered bearing end-play.
When I reassembled it this afternoon I clamped the rear bearing down as shown in the first pic below and measured the clearance between the tapered bearing retainer on the other end of the case without any shims in place. A 0.008 feeler gauge was just right going in.
The roller bearing on the output, on an assembled drive-line, is clamped in place when it sandwiches in between the tranny case and the extension to the tcase.
I added shims to total 18 or 19 thou. This should have left about 10 thou play (yes- I know, 1 to 5 thou is what we are really looking for). I prepped the paper shims with Spray-Tack Red and torqued the retainer down then finished off the fork-rail-tower swap. I never re-measured the tapered bearing end-play.
These are some of the shims I have left over:
I should have put a dial gauge on it before but I didn't. I have now.
It looks like things are good to go as-is:
End-play one way:
End-play the other way:
So it looks like the new shims compressed more than 50%, but my end-play is 2.5 to 3 thousanths.
It's a Jim-job after all!
So that's one way of doing it, Eric.
BTW- dial gauges are cheap now. Well worth the money.
