I replaced the belleville washers because the old ones looked too flat. The nut was a little beat up but still serviceable, replaced that on principle. I reused the stop machine screws. They were still in great shape. All these parts are inexpensive.
I also ordered some new cotter pins for the nut. I used new K-1000-8 nut plates and AN426AD3-4 rivets. My kits didn't come with the cherry rivets. Can't think of anything else.

Thanks Tony. I may go ahead an order a new set of belleville washers, but I think I will use the old nut. I have cotter pins and nut plates. Oh, and I didn't get the pull rivets either, but I'm good with driving a couple of standard rivets. Thanks for sharing your thoughts..................Tom
