    Hi having dismantled and cleaned up the burners on my 22BI am assembling it again.
    In my dotage I have forgotten wether the brass washer goes on the spindle before the graphite packing or after? :rage: image.jpg

    Should go as shown, so it has a place to press against.

    Thank you gentleman as I thought! This makes sense the graphite packing is compressed between the two brass faces ie stuffing box and brass washer.
    Thanks again.

    The washer has a concaved side that is to be headed to the outside(knob connector side), hope it's correct... spindle with a washer.jpg
