The first photo shows the four .002 shims in place and how much the pin stock was expanded to get a really tight fit and hopefully no visible ring.
The 2nd photos shows the blade ended up perfectly centered when closed.
Now the problem, when closed the rocker arm is lower in the back and higher in the front than what the test fitting seemed to indicate it was going to be. This means that the rounded section of the back of the blade where the locking cam rides has too big of a diameter. The hole in the blade is probably a few thousandths off from the point it should be. If I had done a open and close test fit I could have sanded and polished this part of the blade to get it a bit closer to how it should fit.
Fortunately I had not yet set the center pivot pin so the answer is to slightly modifiy the rocker arm locking cam. I will get to that next.
