I would start with a boston 17195 thrust washer and bearing kit between the mount bushing rear and the screw gear on
the shaft. Measure the dial and bushing gap in the front and subtract that from the measured width of the bearing set.
Face off the bushing in the rear that amount then lap off the clearance you need for the dial to spin freely from the back of the dial.
