    If you can't find any contact smooth drag and tell them what size you need.

    Smoothdrag sales C.F. sheets that you can cut your own washers .
    It's quite easy to replicate those original ones .

    There are four tabs which stick out of the circular washers.. Do they serve any function? Would be hard to replicate.

    You can still cut the carbon sheets to size, just be careful not to inhale the dust. Those tabs keep the washer from spinning.

    What Bliner said, very straightforward to duplicate.
