  1. I can't find them locally... you know, the big washer with the tab on it...
    Anyone know where I can order a couple of them on-line?
    Thanks in advance!

    Sam, once when I needed one; (in desperation) I took a plate washer that had a hole the same diameter as the "tab" (had the other one as a pattern) and filed out the rest of the hole to slip on the spindle. (not a fun task)
     
  6. Sam, FYI. I've discovered there are two different sizes- a smaller OD that's used with the tap-in dustcover-type hub ('42-later I think), and a larger OD to use with screw-in dustcover-type hubs. Obviously the smaller can be used with both types but not viceversa.

    Did ya ever get dust covers for the spindle mounts on the BFD?
     
  9. No... what I was thinking about was just having the washer there to keep most of the crap out...

    C9, yer almost right. We were heading out on a rod run on a long weekend. Repacked the front bearings; couldn't find the second washer. Made the new one and took off on the run. Driving into the garage on return; spotted the "lost" one under the work bench where it had rolled!! [​IMG] [​IMG]
