I have a 5 slot FH that hand times to about 6:30-45, any ideas on what size washer is needed? I'd rather buy one or two than all the sizes to figure it out. Also need to know what size roll pin.

Thanks!

Take the one that is in there out and file it down a bit. You want to get it to about 11-11:30 than torque it down.

Thanks for the suggestion 4markk but there isn't a timing washer in it, I checked when I received it.

May I ask how you checked? You are too close to timing for there not to be a washer. L1A1 timing washers are around 1/4" thick. If there wasn't one you'd be WAY overtimed. Not undertimed.

If a 11/32ths (around 0.346 - 0.35") punch falls through with no problem, there is no timing washer. If it doesn't or it is snug, there is a timing washer. Start from the muzzle end. If it stops, give it a good tap with a hammer and the washer should come out.

My 5/32 punch handle width is 23/64 ridge to ridge, it passes easily. Thanks for the input though.:beer:
