Russ - Thanks, I've checked out McMaster Carr and based on the photo from Steve S., they have a suitable style that I'll order. I often forget about MC as a source for these types of parts.
Steve R. - The photo helps. In your photo it looks like a) there are multiple fiber washers on each end of the shaft and b) the large diameter is 1st on the shaft and the brass washer is last on the shaft. I think I'll place them in order according to your photo. Thanks.  While cleaning, I accidently broke one washer. I don't have any fiber washers but I do have nylon and teflon ones. I surmise that as long as they are non-magnetic, they should be fine? Yes, no?

I'll keep chipping away!  Thanks all.
