    They are 3/16" Thick and Felt Washers, maybe Two layers of lamp Insulator felt without the Glue a piece of Real Felt would be better.
    They will allow slow dripping of a small amount of Oil on the Upper Dist. Shaft Bushing if periodically Oiled.

      Rich would you say the size of the felt wick is like that of a dime? I have felt material I picked up at a place that sells fabrics. Since I am 35 miles from the car just want to cut a piece here and take with me to the garage. I guess what I really want to know is the size (inside) of the cam the rotor fits onto??
