Logo 600 › Main shaft pulley shimming?

I have a Logo 600 with the SX shortened main shaft and head running a Mod 0.7 main gear.

I'm trying to figure out the appropriate shimming.

The original L600 manual shows a 0.2mm shim above the belt pulley and a 0.5mm shim above the main gear.

The 600 SX shows two 0.5mm pulleys above the belt pulley and then two 0.5mm shims above the main gear.

I'm not sure which stack up to use or what the optimal alignments should be aimed to achieve by shimming.

Any advice appreciated!

Which ever way you do it, Just make sure that the pinion and main gear align perfectly.

The SX main gear is taller thus the need for more shims. If you are gonna run .7mod gearing (Which I do not advise on a 600), the single shim will be fine. As Wrongler said make sure those align and make sure the tail drive pulley aligns so the the belt has a straight shot through the boom and rests evenly on the two tail idler pulleys.....
