I'm running the same basic setup and Im at 2.8 washer thickness. Found some stainless #4 washers at my local hardware store. Mic'ed them at .9mm the standard thickness is .5mm. Bought a bag of them and mic'ed them with a digital caliper. the ID had to be opened to .120" for the needle. If you don't want to go through all that go to 3 shim washers on your needles.
