    Hi,

    I had to replace the slave cylinder on my Ranger. Had to drop the tranny to get to it. In order to drop the tranny, I separated the transfer case from the transmission and when I was got them separated, I noticed a very thin, now mangled washer lying on the driveway. Ford dealership wasn't able to tell me what it was. Their best guess was thrust washer. I don't think it's a thrust washer. It's very thin and completely flat. the thrust washers I've seen in researching this have all been fairly thick and have staggered curved lips on them. I can see a ring around the one bearing retainer nut that may be an indication of where I washer might have been. Does anyone know what this washer is and do I really need it in order to put the transmission and transfer case back together?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Looks to me like the washer from the shifter bushing. You most likely removed the stick shift before dropping the trans, maybe that washer fell on the ground without you noticing.

    Hi Bill,

    I did remove the stick shift before dropping the trans. Is that bushing a necessity, or can I get along with out it? I've had a heck of a time trying to identify it but was thinking it came from the trans, so maybe that's why. I don't like doing things half-***ed but if I can't find a replacement am I doomed without it?

    Thanks

    It's readily available. This is an Amazon pic, but your part stores should have one. That spring is in lower right.
    I'm not guaranteeing that's the part you found, but it sure looks like it from here. Take it to the store and hold it up to the kit spring to be sure.

    That looks exactly like it. Thanks so much! I appreciate your time and help, Bill.

    Have a good one
