[E-Type] Thrust washers

I took my engine a step further tonight, and measured front
/ rear play.

One of the thrust washers is ‘‘highly polished’’ and has a
stamp ‘‘0.04’’ on its back.

The other one is grey, has a rather ‘‘rough surface’’, and is
stamped ‘‘T.44’’ on its back.

I found that the 0.04 one gives room to insert a 0.10 mm
feeler blade, even a 0.15 was JUST possible on the outer
edge, very near the block surface.

The T.44 one does not allow the insertion of the 0.10 mm
blade.

(I hammered the ends of the crank to moove the crank in the
bearings, using some wood and my favorite 1 Kilo tool).

Now- shall I renew both, and in which size ? Haynes says
there is just ONE standard and ONE oversize at +0.04 which
is marked as such, so at least I have ONE ! 0.04 oversize
washer.

But what is this T.44 one ? The second part of a +0.04 set,
or is it a mix of 1x standard and 1x +0.04 washer ?

Just found this one:

This is a FAR better method then the thin feeler blade method.

Will repeat for more accurate numbers.

Yes Carsten that is the way to do it–have never seen anyone
try to do it with feelers.–

George,

both Practical classics and Mr. Haynes tell you to use
feelers :slight_smile:

Now, I came along that I don�t really need to measure it
again.

Why ?

Logic:

a) there is an oversize item fitted

b) there are only STD and Oversize available.

c) I have about 1/10 play on USED oversize washers, so

d) whatever happens, I HAVE to fit new Oversize washers, and
I bet that, once the wear has been taken out of the game
this way, it will be in a nice range.

So, I ll get a set of oversize washers and fit them.

Huh, SNG says ‘‘special order’’, whilst Limora has them, at
TWICE the price…
