    i got a question on my gravely branded 2 wheel velke. It has the wheel hub with center tube that slips over the velke axle, then a lynch pin goes through both tube and axle. The wheel hub actually rotates on the tube. Okay, there is a washer on the inside that fits over the tube and up against the hub. There is no washer between the lynch pin and hub. The instructions are kinda lacking, but it reads and seems like the washer should be out on the end between the lynch pin and the hub.. Anybody follow me this far? Is my thinking right on this washer? Cause it looks like with out it the lynch pin is going to wear fast other wise.. So thoughts???

    I'm not 100% positive, but I think there is supposed to be a washer there.

    Yes the washer goes on the outside, under the lynch pin. The other side of the hub already runs against the welded washer and when greased, it is acceptable.

    The assembly instructions say in Step 1 "Install each wheel with the washer under the lynch pin". I don't see how that is "lacking".
