I'm interested in building a MLT but I too can not find the 5/8" fender. However my lowes has SS 5/8" flat washers. Does anyone know if these will work because me building this thing hinges on whether I can find these babies.

yes Fender washer is a term used for larger washers that are zinc coated or SS

I ment yes it will work.

you can see the washers I used they were 1/2 inch SS that I just reamed out the whole to fit . All the package said was "SS Flat washer"

As you can see I didnt use them on the inside just on the outside to shim the valve away from the cooler body ... I could have used plain washers but I already had them and wasnt making another trip to Lowes

I kinda thought they would work but to be on the safe side I ordered a couple fender washers from Fastenal.com. They sold them buy the piece SS are $1.40 and the zinc ones are $.20 pc. You can also buy all the parts for the MLT there too. My shipping cost was more than the washers but with the price of gas It should save me some time and effort.

Don't know if this will help anybody, but my 5/8 SS washer search finally came to an end!

I was at Home Depot and after looking through the drawers for about 30 minutes with no luck, out of the corner of my eye, I spotted a "bolt kit" hanging on a rack. It's in a small plastic package with an orange label and has four SS 5/8 nuts, fender washers and lock washers. It think it was about $4.

Edit: Now that I'm home, here's some more info: It's called "Create-A-Bolt" by Crown Bolt Inc. Product number 00692.
