WWTB: SunTour ProCompe / Perfect Spacers

I need one of each type. Thinner flat type for 2 to 3 position cogs and the thicker type for positions 3 to4 and 4 to 5.

Edit: I should have been more clear. This is for a 5-speed Pro Compe (gold) freewheel. I'm pretty sure the 5-speed Perfect used the same spacers.

Thanks

Measure the thickness of each spacer

Find someone in your area who rebuilds pianos

Buy piano wire in your required diameter = thickness

Make your own spacers from the piano wire

I've got spares of some spacers. To know whether I have the ones you need, I'll need some details....
If you can measure the I.D., height (O.D. minus I.D.), and thickness, that would help.
The thickness is different for the "regular" cog spacing and "ultra" spacing.

This chart for the New Winner models shows the spacers that it used. The Perfect and Pro-Compe models used a subset of these. The later Winners had some different spacers, but also used some of the older spacers.

I corrected the OP. This is for a 5-speed Pro Compe (gold) freewheel. I'll get out the calipers and take some measurements. Thank you.

I may have some spacers parts will check if not. Sloar has a pretty nice whole freewheel for sale which should have all the same spacers parts for $25
4 freewheels and a cassette

I just found some random nos freewheel cogs and spacers in one of the lots I bought last fall. They were gold, so I was thinking they were probably Suntour. 'll try to take some pics today if I remember where I placed them.

I have a whole freewheel I could mail to you. If you are interested, lmk via PM and will send your way. Happy to send photos if you want. It is not clean, just took it off a beater bike, but it is fully functional and very little play in the bearings. I fully support the rebuild of yours though. The piano wire idea is great!

Thanks.... I saw Sloar's listing, but I'm really not looking to add more parts. I'm down to one bike and I am getting rid of parts, tools, etc. that are no longer needed.

Thanks, but I'm not in a N+ situation now, but an N- program. I appreciate it.
