Front Wheel axle washer
« on: January 04, 2010, 10:36:19 AM »
So I forgot to put the cotter pin into the front wheel castle nut when I took it for a quick spin the other day.  Fortunately the wheel didn't fall off mid donut, but I have managed to lose the 14 mm castle nut and washer that goes underneath it.  

I noticed that the washer is stamped on the outside with "out side" but don't see anything special about either side of the washer.

Does anybody know why/how it matters which way this washer is installed?  

Thanks!

Check the washer side on,is it conical?
If so,then bulge to the outside.
