If the sizes are given, you can then make them.
Or spend your disposable income in the Ace Hardware Chrome Section.

yes if I had the size I could make them on the lathe I cannot name them all but people that have taken a shovel apart know you find spacers and thick washers all over. I will keep looking, not into buying every little piece for this thing
Its the little stuff that drives the price of these bikes through the roof :chop:

     I haven't taken as many Shovels apart as some on this site but I've taken several more than one apart. I use the bag and tag method. You have a lathe? That's great, I do not. Can't agree with your statement on the "little stuff".  It cost me almost $70 just for to/from freight and insurance for the last set of heads I sent out for refurbishing.  What's a line bore of the cases cost you? No, it's the machine work that drves the cost of these Shovels thru the roof. I try not to sweat the little stuff. Good luck with your build and be sure to post some photos.

..I have used rubber grommets before. As long as it's not near heat. For example mufflers to frame run a bolt trough a clutch spring between muffler and support bracket. worked well. Fat bob tanks famous for breaking tabs due to vibration work well with rubber grommets. That way no need to over tighten either and use washers on either side.

Rubber grommets do require service though, they age and crack, sometimes pretty quickly, so frequent inspections should be done. Not a deal breaker, just one more piece of maintenance.
I prefer an interesting vice to a boring virtue.
