So I got the dural undercarraige plate delivered and bought some nice wheels yesterday. The U/C came with four woodscrews, two bolts, four nuts and two washers. I think that the bolts are passed first hrough the wheel, then a nut added tight enough that the wheel doesnt wobble too much, then through the U/C plate and the final nut tightened up against the plate to hold everything steady. But what is the purpose of the washer? Where should it be placed in this sequence?
And the dural U/C plate is shiny on one side but has a dull white plastic on the other side, that is just a protective layer that I should remove right?

They do sometimes supply odd parts that leave you wondering where they ought to go. Personally I'd fit the washer against the wheels, with everything else after that. I'd also be inclined to use some thread-lock on the nuts holding the assembly onto the undercarriage itself if you're using an i.c. engine.
The white plastic is probably just a protective film layer to preserve the finish on one side during transit David. Peel it off or leave it on, the choice is yours.....

Washer between dural and wheel for clearance. Ask me how the ground loop/cartwheel wrecked mine.A binding wheel is the answer.

I would personally put the washer between the wheel and the nut adjacent to the wheel David, to stop the nut corners rubbing the wheel hub away. the roundness of the bolt head has less effect re wear.
