{Collins} 516F-2 Question

Hi Collins Friends,

I'm busy cleaning/fixing/recapping my 516F-2. The non-metal washer on top of
R5 has disintegrated, and the resistor is somewhat "loose". The manual
describes this item as:

"Washer, shldr, gra fbr, ..." Part number 1210

What would a suitable replacement be? A homebrew asbestos washer, punched
from an asbestos-type gasket material? Teflon? Any ideas?
