Suntour cantelever break.. need help

I am rebuilding a 1985 cannondale mountain bike. One of the cantelever brakes is missing a spacer that has a hole in it. The brake does not work without this washer... How do I find one of these washers?

Thanks

that is a Roller Cam brake. check all the older shops in the area then look on Ebay and ask in the ISO trade threads. you may be better off just getting a new brake. https://cgi.ebay.com/NIB-SunTour-XCD-...item45fa3d0019

Thank you B-girl. That was very helpful.
What is the ISO trade thread?

FYI, you are committed to using a roller-cam or U-brake on that frame. A normal cantilever brake will not fit.

I am not sure just what the threading is, but it should be same as a camti or U brake bolt. someone will chime in shortly on that.

how about Gentlemen? any know the exact bolt size for brake studs on a Cdale?
