I don't know where George got those offset washers, you might check McMaster Carr and see if they have anything like them. George was quite the machinist so he may have made them.

If I can remember George told me he went to a local auto parts store and bought Dorman - Mag Wheel Washers. The last one I did the only ones I could find is Offset - I.D. 0.70 Inch O.D. 1.25 Inch. Probably a good hardware store or McMaster-Carr if the auto parts store doesn’t have anything.

I had an interest in doing this but finding the washers and machining the parts put this way on the back burner. I see one offset washer from Dorman (for Cragars) but not two. Mcmaster has nothing of the sort. I always thought this would make a nice kit to package.

Below the second picture he said:
I decided to make new retainers and . . .

I don't think George ever hesitated to make a part if he thought he could make one that would work better than the original. I think you can do a pretty good job of keeping water out using the original parts and replacing/adding an o-ring.

Fastenal has beveled and hillside washers.
