XR2 wave washer

Hi all,
Does anyone know where i might get a thrust washer and wave washer for the steering arm of our XR2 ? just replaced steering bushes and all mounts after a nightmare saga because not changed since new and everything was welded/fused together,and theres a 2-3mm gap above bottom yolk between yolk and bottom of steering tube,there was no wave washer when i dismantled the leg so im guessing it wore away to nothing...is that poss? both washers are either no longer available or out of stock,if i knew the original thickness i would get them made no problem,does anyone have either or know the dimentions??

thanks,nick.

If its an Offshore Saddle it should already be solid mounted !! Washers should be same on current Saddle. You can make the lower washer the right thickness for the gap you have got.

Bob, its an offshore saddle and leg,it had solid mounts but they were all corroded solid so much so that i had to cut the botton yolk away from the stud, the top bolts and bottom studs have been replaced with new hi tensile ones. i just need to know the original thickness of our thrust washer incase ours is badly worn before i get the wave washer made up.
