I have removed the front engin
I have removed the front engine cover, and disassembled the water pump, up to the sprocket.
You will have to refer to Tav. 26, of the 1990 TR parts manual.
I removed the e-clip, #10, and pushed out the bearing.......out flew the bearing, #9, and the spring washer, #11. Since they just popped out, I thought that the spring washer was flat, per the diagram. In fact, it is concave (convex...depending on the view)....both edges are parallel, but NOT in the same plane.
My question is: Which side goes against the bearing #9? Is it the concave, or the convex side? Note: The convex side has the smaller diameter (ID of the spring washer) touching the bearing, while the concave side (OD of the spring washer) has the larger diameter touching the bearing.
I have the service manual, with a cut-out drawing, but it also shows the spring washer as being flat.
