Title: 1971 A65L Drive side thrust washer
Post by: Caulky on 25 March, 2017, 15:34:46
Hi
There is a circular raised portion on the crankshaft for the thrust washer to fit over.
How high should it be?
I've a feeling mine is worn, the washer doesn't really want to stay put, which makes assembly of the roller bearing, etc. difficult.

Hi Caulky,

                I think you are describing the shim retaining cup and its height is not important. Fit the shims inside the cup and press it onto the inner part of the roller bearing.

 It is not a thrust washer, thats fitted on the timing side.

Best wishes....
