Differential Torque Rod Washers

PostPost by: AlfaLofa » Sat Aug 10, 2013 1:45 pm

The sequence for attaching the torque rods to the diff is:

. Fixed washer on rod
. Bush
. Cup Washer with large hole
. Diff Lug
. Cup Washer with large hole
. Bush
. Cup Washer with small hole
. Nyloc Nut

However the last two sets of bushes/washers I have purchased (from the usual suppliers) have been supplied with only one variety of cup washer - that with the large hole.

Does any one know a source for the small hole variety?

I used shock absorber top washers. Steve lists suitable washers at sj spares, see last two items in list at http://www.sjsportscars.co.uk/index.php?mod=10

I take it that means the two sizes not mild/stainless steel?
