When I went to the msc web site I saw the washers you are referring to. It looked like to me they were to thick. I don't have the invoice in front of me but I believe the washers I ordered were 0.032 thick. They could of been much thicker though I had enough room to put another set of them on with out any trouble. Good luck let us know how it turns out.

The pictures in MSC are sometimes generic. They are suppose to be .032 think. I will measure then as soon as they come in and post it.

I ordered these (Thurseday the 8th )though where I work since we order from MSC several times a week usually.
And they were on my desk when I came in this morning,(Monday the 12th)So they came in Friday afternoon.MSC is almost always quick(and so is McMaster-Carr).
And they are the .032 think washers. The brand is INA. I'm not sure if it is the bearings and washers or the stickers on them but something was made in USA.I hope they were refering to the parts.

Been following this thread, it came up in a search I made, much like the original poster, to find the thread that shows someone, possibly a member here, performing some pretty intense front end modifications. lots of machining and refitting of steering/suspension parts. At some point the gentleman installed a torque multiplier or some such from an Auto racing application. Basically a box that had to be cut into the steering shaft that reduced the steering effort by half through gear reduction. Does anybody remember that thread? I'm searched out trying to find it......

I just spent some time poring over all the various pages on that thread. WOW, I wish I had the nerve and skill to do just some of that. I will however be employing the skills of a machinist friend of mine to see if I can tighten up that pivot pit a bit before installing the new bearings in the kingpin bores.

Once again, anybody needing some Schoolin' on how to mod a Case tractor needs to follow the above link.......you'll be glad you did.

Thanks again 222

I'd rather buy locally and pay taxes.

FWIW, if anyone is interested, it appears that this ebay seller now has kits for the 200/3000 series. I have no idea if they are any good or not, just ran across them:
