Here's two. The one on the right is OEM. The one on the left is V-Twin (32-0038) Taiwan.

Check the thickness of the replacement thrust washer on the OE timer (right), (0.076", the most common size used as a replacement, from assorted thickness washers included in re-build kits. When re-fit, the free-play allowed is no more than 0.008"). And, then the thinner, as-shipped thrust washer on the re-pop (left).
