Re: Axel Shims.

When you reassemble make sure the axle, key, shims and hub are perfectly clean and dry, NO oil or grease.

If it's a big spark that's an indication of a bad condenser, it should be a small spark.

Re: cracked cyl head

Any idea why the head cracked? Possible freeze crack? I would check the underside of the water jacket on the block, LH side for possible crack(s).

Re: Timing a B engine with A Distributor

I would remove #1 spark plug, bring #1 piston to TDC on compression stroke and set the points at just before starting to open, same as you would using the timing pin method. Simples.
