Throttle shaft felt washers..... Must be on the carbs???
Maybe get felt at an auto parts(battery post felt) or at a fabric store or a thrift store-old hats....
Get leather punches of the right size for the OD- outer diam and the ID.

For what it's worth, most people think they are there to form a seal round the throttle shaft. However, there is actually a small hole behind them to deliberately allow a tiny amount of air into the carb intake. The washers are basically a tiny filter.
