Question about the washer between the lifter and locknut. On my engine, the washer was only used on the exhaust lifter...I'm thinking this is not normal? And I assume it is required. If so, can I just get a matching washer at the hardware store or must it be this Whizzer part?

The washer is shown on the exhaust lifter in this pic, between lifter and locknut:

I checked the dealer service manual and it shows the washer only on the exhaust lifter. I wonder why?

Maybe this is what Hal the Elder was referring to in his earlier post?

Hi,


Washer is used on the exhaust lifter only!

The Compression release [lifter cover] has a cam that contacts the washer as the cable is pulled to open the exhaust valve.

The Later Ambassador and NE-r models didn't have the washer or release mechanism because they used an automatic compression release in the head [Did I mention it didn't work for long and leaked].

Have fun,
