You need to determine whether the washer is of the flow through (and over) type that john_s has suggested it may be, or a cross-jet type as later ZVI versions were. I have both designs. They both work equally well for cleaning prints, in my judgement. If the former, every other divider will likely have to be sightly lower and able to permit water to overcome surface tension as it flows over the top to the next compartment. Alternating dividers will be raised and/or taller to permit water to flow under but not over. Over – under – over, etc. If the latter design is employed, all dividers will likely be the same dimensions, as effluent water collects in a compartment on the side of the unit (as yours seems to have), where it is drained off. These will be much easier to cut than the passive (i.e., "fill and dump") design previously described. I also believe the originals may have been cut down, possibly to make it easier to use a sheet film washer. In either case, unless you routinely need to wash more than 6 prints at a time you could always halve the washer's print washing capacity and just cut 6 dividers.
