What spacers/ washer does the 257599 version of the whiz take.
There’s a 1/4 inch of play on the rotor from bearing to bearing

Mc Master Carr has all different sizes of fiber washers.  You will need to measure the ID and od of your old ones.  1/4" sounds excessive.

Measure the size of the washers with a caliper. The amount of washers you need can not be determined until you add some washers and get about an 1/8 inch of play. Measure the ID,OD and width of washers. Probably only need 2 or 3 depending on how wide they are. You can find fiber washers on e bay, amazon, McMaster Carr.
