Maybe Third Gen, Charlie ny, or MacVP could tell you a thing or two about that type of thrust washer.
May be even something unique to Canadian/Australian manufacture.

I think one of the other chaps, down under, was looking for that style of thrust washers.

I believe John has it....Canadian style thrust washer. I'd be shocked if Mac VanPelt did not have some in his inventory.

Rob, what I did was to machine the end of the cluster gear to fit the 8m-7129 t/washer, a little machining on the lathe and then mill the tang to fit the 8M -7129 washer

Thanks Lawrie, I've let Phil know he is probably capable of doing this.
Is that snap ring (?) that's in the end of the cluster normal for that type for thrust washer end.?

Hi Laurie, did that picture post upside down have anything to do with you being on the other side of the world? jk

I've run into that form of a strange thrust washer twice. BOTH times they belong to two different customers both from Australia. I had some (very few)NOS and may have one left. It carries the Canadian part# C91A-7129. There were two different varieaties of it (C91A-7129-E and C91A-7129-F)

Yes Rob, I have.
just rebuilt my 38 box using that setup. I didnt use a new part as it was within spec when assembled. Maybe one of us should buy that new one from Mike.
