I've just re-read this - what is the reason to remove the shims?sams93 "How would I ensure that the bearing is mounted centrally with that though?"
If you are really worried that the bearing will not centre then cut three narrow strips off the shim. Put them 120º apart and slip the bearing in place. Wipe off any excess Locktite and then pull the shim tabs out carefully. The bearing should stay centred if sitting flat. I think the bearing would self centre with the Locktite only especially as the chamfer/radius on the outside race edge is going to centre on the edge of the ledge between the two bushings so the shims wouldn't be needed.
