    Washers

    Anyone know where I can get thick stainless steel washers, I've bought loads of the things including large packs but they are all fairly thin. Looking for something around 3 - 4mm thick, or am I going to have to make them?

    Always thought that the stainless washers supplied with ARP bolts (header perhaps) were always a bit thicker than the norm (and far more supportive when using bolts with reduced or 12 point heads)

    Cheers fabphil, so close but no cigar The internal diameter I would need has an external diameter that just won't fit in place, they do the thickness I was hoping for though, so have bookmarked them for future items.

    Thanks for that, same as Fabphil, they are the right thickness but the outer diameter is too large for my fitment. I may go for the smaller inside diameter and drill them out to what I need but then they become thinner in section, I'll have to buy some and see how it goes.

    If you know someone with a lathe, you just fill a bolt with oversized washers then double nut the other end, chuck them up and turn down the OD.

    Done it a few times for various things.

    Drilling washers an be a challenge but not impossible.
