Source for Racetrack Washers on T-6 B Shifter Base

#1 Post by Edwin Ek » Wed Aug 14, 2019 8:17 pm

I need a couple of these washers. There are 3 per shifter base, and the bolt has an Allen head. If my parts manuals were handy, that would make things easier. But they are in storage.

Is this something you can still get from a dealer?

Thanks!

Which company do you think actually manufactures this washer?

Brad I bet it is Stoddard and everyone else gets them from you.

Stoddard probably has them made by someone. They might even be available from different hardware manufacturers.

I doubt that washer fits anything else on the planet and we should be very thankful that Stoddard stepped up to have them made. Stoddard isn't perfect but where would we be without them. Thanks Brad!
