A J Foyt and Mario Andretti are the only drivers to win both Daytona 500 and Rolex 500,in same year

Jimmy Johnson and Jamie McMurray have a chance this year to do the same.

Might be but not the answer I'm looking for.

I don't think Foyt won both the Daytona 500 and the Rolex 24 the same year.
He won the 24 in 83 and the Daytona 500 in 72.
Andretti won the 24 in 72 and the Daytona 500 in 67. That was the only NASCAR win Andretti ever had.

Sorry I didn't get back to you guys the other day. A couple of you are right kind of. The shims were used to maintain relatively exact clearances for the time period to maintain oil to the crankshaft rod journals. These engines were "dip oiled" rod journals kind of like a lawn mower engine. teh rod journals were note pressure oiled, they just picked up oil everytime the crank turned, it dipped into the oil in the pan.

Again sorry for the delayed reply.

So this had a splash oiling system.Why would it matter what the clearances were any more than any other engine?

They run a slightly larger clearance than a pressure oiled system. If the clearance is too tight it will not get enough oil in With a pressure oil system the oil is forced in so the tolerances can be tighter. I mainly thought it was interesting that they used a shims instead of machining to a closer tolerance. Seems like it would have been a very time consuming process on an assembly line. I know they can be a pain tyring to put together if someone just tosses the shims in one bucket.

Yeah that is kind of strange. Did the shims go between the rod cap and bearing or between the cap and rod? Or are we talking about just the mains?

Between the cap and rod. I know it is nothing mind fogging, just thought it was an interesting bit of information.
