Can anyone help rtruectoc?
loose screws doesn't have anything. perhaps check campyoldy.com (sp?).

can you post a picture? I just took a set of campy dt shifters (circa 1983? 85?) off of a frame. I have all the various pieces. will ship on your dime unless it is simply an standard envelope, then i'll ship on mine.

tried all of the web sites. i made one out of a hard rubber disk that i bought from the hardware store and cut down to match. its functional, but not ideal. will post a pic tonight for whoever may have something. appreciate the help. these forums have been an invaluable resource for my recent first bike build up

ok maybe this is better
McMaster Carr - go to the washers, pick plastic, pick plastic type and then go thru all the dimensions you need.

That is a delrin plastic washer.
You should go to Ebay and buy the cheapest set of Campy DT shifters you can find to get a new set. I had the same problem and got a set of Victory or Triophe for around 11 bucks a while back. For the most part, delrin washers were identical through all DT shifters during the 80's.

don't buy anything. I'm a bit tired after a long weekend but I have this gizmo and will put in envelope for you. I just forgot it today.
