washer for fork stem adjusting nut

Postby chappers1962 » Tue Jul 09, 2019 6:55 am

Hi all - Just a simple question. I have a 1956 G3LS which I'm rebuilding. In the user manual it shows a washer for the fork stem adjusting nut (see pic). However, I can't find this item in the illustrated parts catalog for this year of bike. Is one fitted and if so what's the part number?

(My previous reply changed due to misreading your question).

Indeed, not shown in the Spares List.
Manuals were occasionally incorrect.
My '54 G3LS (same forks) doesn't have that washer fitted.
I poke badgers with spoons.

Hi

The later manuals have the same illustration and a note under the table saying, "NB washer deleted from assembly"
