you stripped the FD, buy one *for that Compact crank, combo.
Just went from a standard double to a compact double.
you may have put a lower profile replacement crank on, and thus the chainline moved outboard.
because the crankarm design was intended to use a shorter BB. to maintain the same chainline.
measure the 2, might have to refit the other , to measure it's chainline dimensions
re the shim, an eccentrically arranged shim, perhaps
thinner on the left, thicker on the right, so DIY made, not off the shelf.
moving it rightward
your measurement will tell you the difference needed,
+ a band on adapter, to use a Braze on FD*
in for a Pence , soon becomes in for a Pound .. +
