I like the idea of the Spirolox but I'm having a hard time matching specs.
What size ring did you use bustert?
I found a WSM-25 on Smalley's site but I can't find one for sale anywhere.

Here are the dims on my plate shaft.


WSM-25:
The problem is the ring won't go over the shaft axially without stretching too far out.
The next size up is too big for the groove.
So either you are letting the groove shoulder do all the work (ring not seating in groove) or I'm looking in the wrong place.

that would be a good "?", mr. hippy. been a long time and i worked offshore and had access to many vendors. you can use safety wire if you shim the plate for zero movement. another way is to use a lock washer after shimming the plate and squeeze the lock ring till it over laps itself and becomes tight. this method works well but a bear if you have to remove it.
