A threaded barrel with a thread pitch of 5/8 - 24 has a 5/8" inch threaded diameter and 24 threads per inch of threaded barrel.

Every 360 degree turn of a device advances the device 1/24th of an inch.

1/24 = 0.04166666666 inch

0.04166666666/ 360 = 0.00011574074

Every degree turned advances the device 0.00011574074 inch

So if my device, torqued down to spec is advanced 45 degrees ahead of being timed, I would have to create a shim that is 0.00520833333 inch.

That's the exact answer I'm looking for! Thanks hoovco

Just torque it down until it lines up. It's a crush washer. It flattens so you can index your device.

A shim is the best way to do it though. I only use crush washers on the old birdcage flash hiders.
