Question Power steering return line washer size?

Hello fellow TB members, I'm having a hard time finding the correct copper washer for my 90 Volvo 240 CAM rack and pinion fluid return line. It's the one that everyone hates with the separate reservoir. After reading some of the posts about copper washers, I went to the local stores to try to find one. No such luck.
Does anyone happen to know the correct ID and OD dimensions for the washers? (M16 ID I'm thinking) Also, where to buy a cheap set would be nice as well.

The 'new' rack sitting on my living room floor is from stamped from 1983. The CAM rack was remanufactured by Maval and purchased from FCP Euro mainly because it came with a mounting kit. The mounting kit however, only has one U-bolt with nuts and washers, the rounded metal bushing, and the aluminum mount. If I had known this, I would've just reused the old mounts, u-bolts, and purchased new nuts. It does not come with everything you need to mount and install the rack like the copper washers.

They're M16x22x1.5.

Thanks again!

I'm changing over from a leaking ZF rack to a free TRW rack and need that kit.
I searched FCP website with that stock number, but it doesn't come up.
Does anyone know if this can be purchased separately?

There is an installation kit available that does both styles of racks but it ain't cheap.

I should've kept it, but I sent it back with the core. I didn't know if that counted as the 'core' or not, so just to be on the safe side, I sent it back. I would've gladly sent you the block and the U bolt with the metal spacer for free if I hadn't sent it back to FCP.

Maybe someone has one laying around that you could ask about in the wanted section?

Here is the paper listing all of the possible rack and pinion choices along with what is included for mounting hardware. It might be of some use, idk.
