Is it possible to stack 2 shims on the input shaft side get get the correct clearance?

Basically, I need a shim that is not available anymore, but I can get the clearance by adding 2 that are avail together.

The builder said its because I used the aftermarket bearings that came with the rebuild kit, instead of OEM. Yet again, I had to learn this lesson, always go with OEM lol

NTN is OEM, all I use.

Make sure you have the outer bearing on right, Repo-Sol didn't :)

pics and details of what you are doing before making a costly mistake.

i wouldnt see why adding two shims would cause an issue, but obviously leaving out the snap ring would cause issues lol.
What snap ring? You're playing with the wrong shaft!

Oil guide plate has NO effect on the shim clearance, yet the shim holds it in place.

Trying to follow he FSM to guess at the shim...waste of time.

Is he using the OEM tool?

What is the clearance and what is the shim thickness used with the clearance?
