Excellent. However, there is one question which I have never seen answered
anywhere. How can you set up the end float between 6 and 8 thou when the
thrust washers come in 5 thou increments?
My experience was:
12 thou end float, thrust washers need replacing;
installed two new std thrust washers and reduced end float to 9 thou;
replaced one thrust washer with 5 thou oversize, end float reduced to 4 thou.
I left it at 4 thou on the basis that it could only get bigger over time.
