I'm going to be placing an order with Marco, and I need to purchase the correct washers to fit under this post. Can someone please provide me with a link to the correct washer. Thanks!

The washer that goes under the playfield behind the nut? It should be a size 8 or 10 if I remember correctly.

I'm referring to the washer that goes below the post ABOVE the playfield, but it may very well be the same size washer as the one below. My GnR already has all the washers below the playfield, but for some reason all the ones above are missing. I'm assuming they are supposed to be there, right? There's a washer beneath every post on my Tommy.

So a #6 washer?

No, I've never seen washers above with that kind of post. The ones with a hex base seem to have them.

I just buy a box of washers at the hardware store in sizes 6, 8, and 10. And that covers most you will find on a playfield.

And again, I think that one is a 10. 8 maybe.

Looking at some of the Stern manuals they describe it as an 8 with a female 6 on the top.

And pay much less money in the long run.

That's what I thought too. But apparently this isn't a common size post. And Marcos listing doesn't give any of the specs. So I don't know if that's a 8-32, 10-24, 10-32 or even a 6-32 thread or width. It doesn't give any of the measurements. not even a link for a nylock or Kep nut to hold it in place.

That makes sense.

Get one of those SS washer sets with multiple sizes and keep them on hand.

Only a few games appear to use this post, and Marco was literally the only place I could find them. Unfortunately, my newly acquired GnR doesn't have the correct posts. As you can see from the photo, the posts in my game don't have the round metal base at the bottom. That's why I'm ordering the correct ones. I just wasn't sure if there was supposed to be a washer beneath them. As you can see from the second photo, the posts in my Tommy do have washers beneath them, but that doesn't mean they are supposed to be there.

I think I am indeed going to grab a box of washers from the hardware store. That's an excellent suggestion. It seems like I'm always needing them.
