Lock Washer
Yes.In terms of providing any real "locking" they're next to useless. If you want a nut to stay put use a Nylok or Loctite.

Look at his pics. The head length works out just fine without an un-necessary spacer on the right side. Shoulder against the inner bearing race is a perfectly acceptable arrangement.

I was always taught that you replace these everytime you take them off, but you know how that goes. They worked OK before the Nylok came along.
