    i need a shim spacer (see part # 63 - page 2 - of the attached exploded view). it lists 2 different thicknesses (.0005" and .00035") how do i know which one i need? the one on my pump now is shot and its the thinner one, but how can i determine which one is correct?

    Wild Bill's got it. If it has the clear one (as 99% of them did) use it...but it actually doesn't matter if you use the silver (thicker) one...you just can't go vise versa.

    thanks guys.... i need to buy one today as we have a storm coming tommorow.... hopefully i can find just the shim spacer locally - but i have a feeling they may make me buy a complete gasket set....

    thanks no lead...
    i picked up 2 of each locally for the whopping cost of $6.50...
    i ended up using one thick one, and one thin one - this enabled me to torque it to spec and not bind the lever. plow angles faster now and no more drip drip onto my bumper...
