Panhead rocker shafts and blocks

Hi everyone. Does any of you Panhead guys know what the end play is? or should be ,on a new rocker shaft and block for a Panhead.
And,does anyone know of any possible way to fix excessive end-play on the rocker shafts? Thanks.

0,004"-0,012" I braze the blocks up a little on the side.

Is it just the top bronze block that you braze? Or the cast bottom block as well. Thanks.

Pa, it sure would be nice if you could shim it. The rocker and pushrod arm are permanently attached to rocker shaft,so there is no way to slide shim onto shaft,(like a shovelhead)

I braze up both to have an even sidepressure.
