      i just closed up the garage for the night and will finish this job tomorrow. also, it seems as if my thrust washers might be a little too thick. any suggestions anyone?

      thanks tbars. i read this thread too. i just got an email back from aussie and they told me to try and grind down my thrust washers. what would be the easiest way to go about doing this if i dont have a grinder? is there a sandpaper of a certain grit that i can get that would work? i dont mind spending the time hand sanding these thrust washers, i only need them thinner by about 0.012.

      I tried doing it with emery paper. It went REALLY slow though, so I just got some carrier shims that were .010 less thick than my thrust washers and used those.

      EDIT: ah nevermind I saw your other post and replied.
