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

Also replaced the nose fork. Used a dremel to cut off the back of the CCR rivets. Worked better than drilling out those rivets. The kit didn't include enough new CCR rivets and I also used solid rivets instead.

Anyone interested in an original undamaged nose fork for free (only shipping cost within the USA)?

It’s yours. Wrecked your old fork?
