I am acquiring all the hardware parts (some I already have). I do not see an OD for the fender washers. Is it alright to use any size? I read in one post that said “it needs to be smaller than 20mm” but I cannot seem to find any type of 5/16 fender washer smaller than about 1″ from all my sites I go to at least. Also, looking at the “Bundle” hardware the fender washers look to be well over the 1″ mark. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!March 8, 2016 at 6:26 pm #8763
Sorry, the speed washers need to be under 20mm, the fender washers need to be over 24mm. I also made a printable version that takes the place of both of those.

Great! I went ahead and ordered the 1″ fender washers crossing my fingers. Those are a small bit larger than the 24mm so they should work! Awesome!
I have ordered basically all the parts but still looking for the coupling nut and the spring. Can you by any chance point me in a direction where I can find them? I DID find the coupling nut for about 7″ on ebay which I found pretty expensive but if that is the route I have to go, Ill take it.
Thanks for the help vicious1! Hopefully I can get this up and running in no time and be able to add to the progress of this project! I have a few ideas but can’t really see if they need to really be implemented until its completely built!March 9, 2016 at 2:31 pm #8799
You local hardware store should have them, they are commonly used for connecting allthread.
