FAL muzzle break shims/crush washer?

I just got a metric DSA FAL and I need a set of shims to time the muzzle break! Any one know where to get these shims? Do you know the right size? its not 5/8 or 9/16. The thread size is 9/16 x 24 left hand. Thanks ...... up date I was told that it doesn't take shims or a crush washer. But the muzzle break need to be machined? Any one know any thing about that? Any gunsmith's in Southern California?

I've used red Loctite on two of my FAL's. Even after a few hundred rounds each, the combo devices are still where I left 'em.

ALLOT OF PEOPLE CUT A PAPER CLIP TO THE INTERNAL SIZE OF THE 22MM COMBO DEVICE/MUZZLE BRAKE. SO IF YOU HAVE A PAIR OF WIRE CUTTERS,HAVE AT IT.
