I rated the book four stars however, not because it was not a detailed work on the B series unit engine, but rather I was looking to find an easy to understand way of crankshaft shimming, but found this book was just as cryptic as other manuals. My overhauls on these engines have shown that previous mechanics struggle with this procedure, as well. Most will not be able to avoid the destruction of expensive new main bearings while trying to figure out the shim stack with most giving up and resorting to using no shimming for the crank whatever! I was hoping to see if Mr. Ratio had discovered various methods to the shimming problem making it easier on the service techs in the field. I developed one method over the years that I apply to both A series and B series engines with fast and dependable results without sacrificing a set of new main bearings to accomplish the correct shim spacing. I'm sure there are other methods, as well?
The rest of the manual is well worth the money and the read. Definitely a "must have" for those that ride and service all B series BSA unit singles!
stating .015" for both intake and exhaust. The Rupert manual give valve timing clearances and cold clearances
