washer kits

Post by fargofour »



Hi,

Has anyone seen a kit of assorted washers for carb linkages? The small steel and nylon ones and the small cotter pins? Over the years I've lost or broke different ones.

Thanks.

Bud.

Check on line, I got cotter pins on line seems to me the size was 1/32 and I'm sure you can find washers of that size.

My suggestion would be to make one. Order a six or 12 pack of each of everything needed and get a clear plastic slotted box to hold them all in different spots. They do it for cotter pins, and for O rings, so once you get one done, evaluate the cost and sell them online. Might make some bucks if they get popular. Capitalize on an item that lots of people do not even know they need yet.

I really wasn't looking to build one, that's why I asked.

But I couldn't find what I was looking for so I did build my own.
I bought a nylon washer kit:
HVAZI 550PCS Nylon Flat Washer Assortment Kit for M2 M2.5 M3 M4 M5 M6 M8 M10

And a steel washer kit:
304 Stainless Steel Flat Washers Set 580 Pieces, 9 Sizes - M2 M2.5 M3 M4 M5 M6 M8 M10 M12

These were from Amazon. Now to find the small cotter pins.

Thanks for the idea.

Bud.
