Wavy washer

I know everything serves a purpose. And I'm wanting to know what the wavy washer does? It's a very thin almost shim with a cut out for the woodruff key . It's set on top of the timing cam and the flywheel sets on it when assembled. Thanks for explanations.

I think it does the same job of a split washer, that it it holds to the load better because it takes pressure to squash

Is that like a thrust washer?

Did you even read the thread?

He's asking about the wave washer in a Vespa Ignition setup.

Re: Wavy washer

Dirty, I was wondering if they should be renewed as part of the engine overhaul? Also thrust washers are flat washers. (edited)

Les, knowing your problems from the other thread these are not wave washer related.

I've only ever reused wave washers

Agreed and same here . ;)

Just in case :

Google :

"Wave washers—also commonly referred to as wave springs or coiled wave springs—are used to absorb stress due to axial compressive loads, acting as a cushion. "
