    you just remove the nut off the rear of the shaft.

    Id swap to mcmaster washers before shimming though.

    Do you know where your slip is at? Don't just go shimming it before knowing where your slip is at currently.

    I'm checking it tonight, I have Riva washers in it now. The shims go on the out side of the Riva washers or u stack them if both are needed or?

    Your shims go in between your spring washers, not against your clutch washers. Like this :
    )()() ----> this is standard
    )|()|() ----> that is where your shims go.

    Do one to start with and recheck slip. One normally bumps it up a substantial amount.
