Default 1983 XLX Rear Mag Bearing Parts order

The FSM and the parts manual show a diagram that is hard to make out what part is what and with multiple years thrown together. And on top of that, unless I'm viewing it wrong(very likely) the parts diagram in both manuals show the parts in reverse order from left to right compared to an actual picture in the FSM of the chain side axle. The picture shows the nut on the chain side. The drawing parts diagram shows the nut on the disk side.

Right now I have from left to right.

Seal>outer spacer>bearing>top-hat shim>shims>long inner spacer>bearing>outer spacer>seal.

Is that correct? Does it matter which side of the long inner spacer the shims go on? When I measured for end-play it made a difference in reading by switching sides with the inner spacers from disk side to chain side.

Also, Does the outer spacers large or small end poke through the grease seals?

thanks for any info.
