Yes, the fiber washers are specifically designed to center the armature in the field. No set number on each end, it's really trial and error as to how many to stack on. If you're just wanting the right size, do you have a micrometer? If so, I'd just measure the ID. The OD shouldn't matter too much as long as it isn't bigger than the ID of the bearing carrier. Maybe someone on here already knows the precise measurements off hand. I've got a couple two star GE's stripped down and boxed for later restoration but can get one out and measure if you don't have something to work from. Good luck with your fans!
