Shakeproof washers?

  • Shakeproof washers?

    I've noticed several instances in the parts manual where "shakeproof washers" are called out. What are these? Are they just an old name for outside-tooth lock washers?

        When I did a search .. it was mostly English websites that got hits.
        I dont know if there is a difference between inside and outside ones.
        The inside ones seemed to come up for "shakeproof".

          Clark; the V-8 exhaust manifolds had the thick (actually cast looking) FLAT washers and OUTSIDE tooth lock washers on the 3/8" bolts, on about 1960 and earlier they were nickel plated bolts and did not rust like 1961 and on type do.

          I believe some Studebaker "shakeproof washers" are inside tooth, some outside tooth depending on their use.

            The application I'm wondering about is the steering bellcrank pinch bolt.

                Thanks Rich! That helps, especially since I can't seem to find insides in 7/16"

                  Nickel plated, huh? that explains it... I thought they were stainless but they didn't look quite right. I use stainless when I replace 'em, anyway (actually my whole engine has stainless bolts everywhere they show, except for the head bolts <G&gt

                    Nate what's the best source you've found for getting the stainless steel bolts, nuts, washers, etc.

                    I always think of things last moment when I need to put the part on the car, then it's a little late to go looking. Figure I should ask and then plan ahead with ordering, since it's probably by mail.

                    Thanks,

                    Best Regards,

                      Eric,
                      Down here in the south central valley, there are places that specialize in hardware and other stuff peculiar to the dairy industry (yes, California long ago surpassed Wisconsin in dairy production). The one that's about 12 miles from me has a NICE selection of stainless steel bolts 'n nuts! Cool stainless plumbing fittings too!
                      Actually, any place where there's lots of food processing industry ought to have hardware outlets that carry lots of stainless stuff.[8D]

                      Miscreant adrift in
                      the BerStuda Triangle


                      1957 Transtar 1/2ton
                      1960 Larkvertible V8
                      1958 Provincial wagon
                      1953 Commander coupe

                      No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

                        I buy my stainless stuff from one of two places; if I can plan ahead Jerry Forrester sells stainless hardware, alternately this place is a convenient stop on the way to JP's place.

                            Before you go out and blow your money on stainless fasteners, make
                            sure you research their ratings! Most stainless fasteners are Grade 2
                            which I would NEVER use on suspension parts. People assume that just
                            because its stainless - its stronger - thats not the case.

                            Tom
