Default Spacers

Hoping someone can help me identify the correct size
spacer that is used to capture the rod end bearings. Currently
mine are riding on the bolt and not the bearing. The bolts
are AN-3s/

Thanks

It would be helpful to know the location of the rod end bearing. Most likely it will be one of these.

WASHER 5702-75-60 STEEL WASHER FOR AN3

The only place I know of that stocks this part is Vans Aircraft.

In some places where the rod end bearing travel is linear motion i.e. there isn't any rotation of the bearing as the push rod moves thru its travel (for example the elevator push tubes), an AN960-10 or 10L can be used. An AN970-3 is typically used where one side of the rod end bearing is clamped under a bolt head or nut.

NAS1149F0332P REPLACES AN960-10L
NAS1149F0363P REPLACES AN960-10

When in doubt use the 5702-75-60

James,

Thank you for the reply. These are the spacer/washers
that I am talking about:

Default RE:

Here is a link to the washer wrench tool that will work with standard AN type washers that was being discussed in those previous posts.

http://www.cleavelandtool.com/Washer.../#.WLjXB9KqNaQ

5702-75-60 is the part no. for the small diameter (5/16" dia or thereabouts) steel washer that can be used with rod end bearings as a spacer.
