View Full Version : Thrust washers, via Scott Helms and my way

07-04-2008, 12:04 PM
Due to the rain and being too lazy to get up early for golf, I've finally gotten around to posting these.

I did somehow mange to lose a few of the assembled crank, but the concept is there for what we did and in reasonably clear detail. :laugh:

Oh, Scott's new web page: Custom Thrust Washers (https://www.customthrustwashers.com/index.html)

Nice looking project, Paul!

This does not appear to be a DIY in your
home garage, weekend project. I'll pass.

As I stated in the web page, the washers that are pictured below mine will work fine for any needed replacement and since your readings from the crank have proven that you don't need them, it's not a project that you even need to think about.

I only did mine the way that I did because the engine was apart and because of who was working on it.

Nice job Paul. I like Scott's new web page but a couple of photos would be nice.

This link still works, which is where I found Scott after you talked to me about these being available.

I know that. I just never know when you're thinking about a new project. The biggest rumor coming out of PR is that some architect guy is running around buying up magic markers and white boards, so you never know......
