    I pack the shroud (tube) full of grease and any excess is pushed out when you insert the shaft. I use Sta-Lube marine grease

    Hi Gary.
    These would do the job.
    Search for โ€˜nylon washersโ€™. There are a lot of sellers who sell multiple sizes, usually giving you two choices, size and quantity.
    You need M4 which will usually have a 4.3mm diameter hole. The next choice is quantity. You will notice that it costs less to buy more, sort of, so 20 should be about right.
    Peter.

    For what its worth, I use Sta-lube Marine grease. It seems to have the right consistency and it come it a grease cartridge so you can use a grease gun if you have added a zerk fitting and you can also just scoop some out and hand pack.

    You can get the washers on eBay from the โ€˜bolt shopโ€™. I also use these nylon washers.
