The past couple of days I've noticed some front end play on the convertible. So today I get the front end up in the air and there's a weird sort of play in the tires - almost like a loose bearing but without the in & out common with a loose bearing.

Well, I get the dust cap off and what do I find? No washers between the nuts and the bearings! I think this was probably a personal doofus although I'm not sure, since I had some other stuff done to the front end.

Anyway, I can't seem to track these washers down anywhere locally. I tried making my own, which worked out pretty good except I couldn't get the washer just the perfect outside diameter size so that the grease cap would stay on.

I can get these things from NPD or Mustangs Unlimited, but it pains me somewhat to pay over $20 (price of 2 washers plus quick shipping) for 2 washers. Unfortunately, I've got to have this car as it's my daily driver.

So, I was wondering: does anyone have 2 spare washers that I could purchase for a nominal fee, or send a beer for, or something? Any front drum washers from 67-69 will work, or any 8 cylinder 65-66 washers will work. Anything later won't fit right.

Anyways, thanks guys & gals, and if someone's got 2 just hangin out that I could procure somewhat quickly I would be most appreciative!

Sorry, No spares. Can't you get these from a local parts store??? It seems like a pretty common part.. Maybe you'll have to go visit the Junkyard Dog....

Neither Advance, Autozone, or Napa carries this part. Ford doesn't have anything in stock. The guy at Autozone told me if I couldn't find anything else we could go thru some driveaxle boxes to pick out an extra one in there (they often pack extra washers in the boxes) but that's a needle in a haystack hope that there's one that will match.

If Bill doesn't have any, let me know and I'll ship 'em out to ya. I just did the same swap, and I should have the washers at home.
