I've been held up on finishing my Stihl 07 build because of two pin bearing thrust washers.
Thanks to AK Doug in Alaska he seen my wanted post and seem to be the only one on the planet that had a spare set. He put them in the mail and sent them my way at no charge.
Thank You Doug I'm gratefully indebted to you, you saved my build.
Now here's the next set back. The IPL shows these two thrust washers.
The rod is 12.66 mm wide with the pin bearing in without the washers.
The distance between the the piston journals were around 15.5 mm
Giving it a lot of slop.
With the thrust washers on the width is 17.60 mm.
So I'm having to trim some meat off the piston journals to get it to fit.

Respect for those that port for a living.
Finally I achieved a opening of 17.8 mm.
Once I got it to 17.7 mm it took 3 attempts to
Get it on the rod without being to tight
Finally success.
