I am finally getting my rocker boxes back together and want to put my new top end on this weekend.

Just to recap:

Move thackary washer(spring washer)up against inner rocker box and have flat washers butted up against the ends of rocker arm.

Do I need to add an extra washer between the spring washer and inner rocker box? It seems the end of the spring washer can dig into the aluminum inner surface of the rocker box.

I read somewhere to buy a couple extra 1/2" ID washers (which I did) and I can't recall what I'm supposed to do with them or where they go.

Correct.

No. It seems like that is what will happen, but in fact will not.

They replace the 3/8" washers (2) that originally came with the asssembly(ies). If you look closely at the spindle, there is a step/shoulder near the threaded portion of the spindle. When you move the thackery further toward the end of the spindle, the flat washer needs to be 1/2" to clear the step/shoulder.

Steve, that helps so thanks for the info.I had one assembled and I did it the right way. I just wanted to make sure before I push it all in and get the o-ring seated in there.
