Assuming it's a small shaft, any of the Merc thrust washers with the taper centre will work with type of hub, though the washer from say a Mirage, or Bravo1 will look wrong, as it's a bigger diameter than the hub itself, but as I say, it will work fine.

The proper washer is exactly the same as far as the internal taper, but is smaller diameter, and doesn't have the top hat section.

hold on a mo, I'll do a pic

The cleaver washers do look a little thicker actually, mebbe you need that thickness to take up that slack.

Cleaver eh?...get ready for some bow-steer!
