Can anyone tell me if the yellow & blue paint marks on the Variator center nut and washer are from the factory? If they are, I have read comments here stating that the washer needs to placed correctly so as to apply the appropriate torque pressure on the fixed variator drive; that its a spring washer and therefore needs to have the elevated side facing towards you. Now once the washer has been "crushed" at 76 lbs per foot against the pulley, should it not be placed on the same way, WITH THE PAINT MARKINGS FACING YOU??? regardless of the convex/concave inclination?

I would say they are from the factory but never paid attention to them on mine. You want to make sure the washer will crush when installed. That is the the outside of the curved washer is against the variator. That will allow it to crush as it is being torqued. The nut will back off in time if the curve is facing you when it is tightened. :wink:

Thanks Mike.
How do I know which side of the washer is right side as each time it is torqued; will it not bend the other was around?

The Washer Does Bend a Little, if you put to much Torque on them, Don't matter what side the washer goes on, mines is bent a little So just turn it Over and use it each time you Remove it?

The paint marks are probably from the factory, someone torqued it then marked it.

The washed is a belleville washer, I think that's the term, there is a discussion somewhere on this forum about it. Maybe bellville. Can't remember for sure. Yes it goes on one way or the other.
