As well there is a locking nut 02-0049 to keep the rod from coming loose.

Thanks. I kept looking at the bottom of the top nut and the threads on top of the dampening rod down in the fork tube. What confused me was there was no jam nut. Then it dawned on me that they may thread together.DUH!! Might that jam nut be SAE?? Same set up as the Commando.

Cute, how the nuts and bolts all spin themselves into the assemblies.

The creator of that YouTube animation (Crankbuster) has a number of similar assembly videos, mostly dealing with BSA unit singles, primarily 250 models but applicable to others as well. Much more informative and entertaining than a Haynes manual...
