It goes inside the outer washer cap and holds felt in place. One can only hope you're not going to use that axle?

No washer on the outside. Some folks install a thin washer between the bearing and felt. Keeps the bearing from eating the felt seal. After the felt just install the cap.

Forgot to mention-
That picture was probably used to describe a problem. In fact it looks like my edit but no washer goes between the felt and cap.

Let me explain --the felt goes on next- see pic.
then the cap? note washer rides OUTSIDE of tube
OR is the washer smaller diameter and goes INTO [INSIDE]
the tube where it contacts the edje of the sleeve
and agaist the bearing,. Then felt then cap?

NO washer on the outside of the felt. . . . (Period) Before the cap goes on, you should see the felt. The washer used on the inner seal is smaller and fits inside the tube. This smaller diameter washer is sometimes used between the bearing and felt.

The picture is WRONG!!!

The felt should bearly extend past the axle tube. The felt goes INSIDE the axle tube and gets compressed by the cap.

That is the equation --I will use the smaller washers so the cap will go in further and the hub will be futher away from the cap.This sway it will be set at the max taper
Yes The picture is wrong only used it to get an idea of the set up imaginening there was no felt under the washer---
Thank you
