WASHER SHIM .265 X .50 X .012Always OEM - Nothing generic, "equivalent" or off-brand.
A shim is a washer or thin strip of material used to align parts, make them fit, or reduce wear. Shims may also be used as spacers to fill gaps between parts subject to wear. On machinery installations (pumps, motors, etc.) the recommended practice requires new shims to be placed under every supporting foot. This guarantees flexibility for adjustments, like a slight raising or lowering of a motor, when parts of the machinery need to be replaced and aligned properly.
A washer is a thin plate (typically disk-shaped, but sometimes square) with a hole (typically in the middle) that is normally used to distribute the load of a threaded fastener, such as a bolt or nut. Other uses are as a spacer, spring (Belleville washer, wave washer), wear pad, preload indicating device, locking device, and to reduce vibration (rubber washer). Spring washers, which have axial flexibility are used to prevent fastening or loosening due to vibrations. Locking (lock) washers prevent fastening or loosening by preventing unscrewing rotation of the fastening device.
