Some books show it, some books just tell you that the entire valve must be replaced (presumably with both washers in place), but there is a part number for the fiber washer between the valve and the case. We can assume that it can be replaced.
However, this fiber washer is tight at the base of the valve and cannot be removed without destroying it on the threads. How the heck can a new one be put on the valve?


Stepping on others doesn't make you stand tall.

On my 67 Triumph 650 both washers can be replaced. I don't remember having to force them on.
