Overdrive re-build ?

As part of my spring cleaning I decided to remove the sump plate
on the overdrive unit of my '78 MGB.  Beside an acceptable amount
of "shwarf" there was also 3 pieces of what I have come to identify
as a thrust washer for the LH overdrive.  At least I think that's 
what it is...about 1.25" in diameter with notches cut at all four
corners (of a circle !)  My question is, what exactly does this part
do and when can I expect to have to re-build ?  The gearbox and
overdrive appear to suffering no ill effects in the absence of this
part, although I have noticed an occasional grind when reversing 
with a cold engine/gearbox.
