When assembling the clutch shoe to the fan assembly, do you need the shim spacer with the holes? What purpose does it serve?

Thanks

Yes, you should put the shim in there, because it lifts the clutch up off of the hub slightly to keep the clutch shoes from dragging.

All for the spectators!!

Also shorten the two bolts a tad that hold the clutch on, so they don`t bottom out and come loose later.

It depends.

With a stock fan then yes you need it, it keeps the shoes from dragging on the top of the fan hub.

If you have an aftermarket fan that is relieved where the shoes move in and out then no you don't need it. QuickUK and Mavrikk fans are that way off the top of my head.
You can see it in this picture

the one on the left is milled away a bit and doesn't need the shim.

Ok. The photo shows it clearly. So, I could probably make my own brass shim in a bind.
Thanks for the help.
