The clutch nut has a cupped washer behind it. Does the cup face to the back or the front please?

I think that answer must come from someone familiar with the Triumph 4-spring clutch. Obviusly, I'm not.

Hi David
I have not seen a washer like that  before ??????
the washer needs to butt against the shaft adaptor, the inner drum may or may not sit flush with it
Does the nut fit in the recess? but then what happens if you use the lockwasher???
All the washers I have fitted are plain both sides about 5mm thick, theres a spigot on the nut to centralise the washer

Hello John. This one's about 4mm thick but it has the recess. You are correct in that the nut has a shoulder and it's the same size as the hole in the washer and so it's a perfect fit. I have tried fitting the washer with the recess facing and I have been able to get the cush-drive tight on the shaft. I just want to do the right thing. David.

The recess faces inwards.
