mate just swap the spool out of the middle.
otherwise you will have to workout which if any of the shims you have will work.
you have to change the crown wheel anyway.

definitly swap the minispool into the VN center. changing the center from the VP into the VN will throw things out. the centers were mass produced. in an ideal world everything would bolt up perfect, however things aren't. thats why the shims are used to set the final adjustment

gearsets are also machined as sets (crown wheel and pinion) and these should always be kept together also
