    We have never really stocked any Tanaka heads other than a few Brains if people want them. The past few days we had to pull a couple of 5" semi auto heads off new machines because we had customers in need. So we ordered a few of them and they come with this white plastic spacer and a silver washer that the instructions say are to be used with Tanaka units....however I have never assembled a new out of the box Tanaka that had these parts. Is this something new or? Even the pair of 2501's that I sold yesterday did not have them between the head and the gearbox.

    Are these maybe for non tanaka products...some bad translation from Japanese to English or???

    Hi,
    The additional spacers are for mounting to a Tanaka that has a female gearbox (like the old TBC-2510).

    Ahhh, ok. See the directions are very vague on that.

    Although I just put a blade kit setup on a 340 and good lord was that instruction sheet vague.
