If all else fails, try British Parts Northwest. I got an assortment from them
a few years ago and they were useful on more than one engine. You might
consider having the washer pinned so that it is less likely to fall out.

Subject: [Spridgets] Thrust washers ahd crankshaft end float

My 948 bloclk is in the machine shop and the machinist called this afternoon
with some questions that he needs answered: B The book says that the end
float should be between .002 and .003 B but mine is showing .009 end float.
Measuring the distance between the center main throws where the thrust
washers sit the distance is 1.3815 and is +/- .001 difference on two other
cranks I brought him this afternoon. B The thrust washers themselves measure
.092 B .. So what he needs to know is if any of these measurements are out of
spec and if so which as the book doesn't list these areas dimensions. B Does
anyone know of a supplier who sells oversize thrust washers? B I need a set
that is around .005 as I can install a set of standards on the one side and
the oversize on the other side and end up with .002 - .003 end float. B Any
ideas or how has anyone else dealt with this issue?
Suggested annual donation B $12.75
