what goes here that I don't have? I am wondering as the fan bobbles back and forth a bit more than I like and it has new bushings.Bolt may be worn some of course but the round cup thing does not take up all the space and the brass washer is all but worn away. A friend said maby a felt washer?

A felt washer fits inside the little cup and soaks up the excess fan shaft oil that you put in under the little pipe plug.

Thank you! this 1 has a grease fitting in it,so apparently that is not original.But it seems to work ok.

Great! But if the bushings are as worn as you say, they should be replaced. The flange on the rear bushing doubles as a thrust washer.

Well I had replaced the bushings back when I was working on the engine.It was a in and out wobble as in towards the radiator,about a 1/16 of a inch or a tad more.The felt took up the "slop". It was nothing serious. I finally after a couple years of not being able to get the pickup project out of the building because of a door issue, I finally got it out and in the shop to piddle on it some.I put the aluminum clamp on crankshaft pulley on it today and dealt with this tiny in and out wobble.
Changed oil in it as it has been sitting 2 years at least.
