Has anyone that has done an SE build had alot of play in the head? It felt gritty when I had everything together, so I pulled the head apart, and somehow there was an additional brass washer stuck in one of the thrust bearings from the factory. (I know, never trust anything pre-assembled) Now that I pulled that out, the head is full of slop. I don't think that the three shims per side they gave me is going to cover it.

When you say slop do you mean in the spindle and the dampers?

If so, mine has a bit after 15 flights anyway and i only used 2 washers either side.
