  • Front Distributor Thrust Washer
  • I'm looking for the specs on the thrust washer that goes between the distributor shaft assembly and the distributor case. A little help, please.

  • Are you referring to the front mount distributor? If so, which part? 14, 24, or 25?

  • Are you asking about the plate that is 2.5 x 1.12 inches?

  • What I'm referring to is the round washer that goes between the plate you've mentioned and the distributor housing.

  • None of the distributor assembly drawings 9N-12000, 9N-12187, 9N-12175 show that there is any washer where you are expecting it. The plate I mentioned is carburized file hard and is shown running against the flush ends of the distributor housing and the bushing. If you are finding a washer in there, you may have discovered a previous mechanic's way of taking up a little extra play caused by wear, and you are on your own. (I am assuming you are working on the 9N designed front distributor).

  • I see the same thing in the diagrams. I've gotten the washer with every replacement cam & weights I've bought, until the one I bought yesterday. Thanks for looking into this for me. I guess I put it together as it is.
