I cleaned up the clutch and variator assemblies and installed a new belt and Malossi rollers and guides, and am at the point of reassembling everything. The GT200 is, of course, different from the GT300 I had, and the service manual and parts diagrams are much less instructive. All I have left are the following parts, and

1. I'm looking for the correct assembly order. Basically, does the flat washer go on the belt side of the variator half, or the fan side? The factory diagrams are useless.

2. There was no little o-ring evident during disassembly. The part I received (832508) is the one recommended with a variator rebuild by SPC and SW, but is clearly not the big 5 inch o-ring that goes around the fan vanes. What does it do, where does it go?

Thanks.

There is a chance that Marcia shipped the wrong o-ring. She is new and still figuring out what's what.
Does it look like the one that fits the oil drain plug? If that's the case, let me know and I'll get the correct part out to you right away.

The order is bushing, very thin washer, outer plate with o-ring on it, big counterbalancer thing with teeth, and then the nut that you use once. That goes directly against the big thing with teeth. There is a mark on the outer plate, and two arrows on the big thing with teeth. You are supposed to line these up, but they never line up, so get them as close as you can. I'm not sure which arrow you are supposed to use, and don't think it makes a difference, but I usually use the one near the balance marks where they removed metal at the factory.

Oops. My bad, not SPC. It is an oil drain plug o-ring from a different order. I found the correct big o-ring under another poly bag of ordered parts in my box o'parts. For some reason I also ordered two Right Rear reflectors instead of one for each side. Brain damage.

Thanks for the assembly feedback. I was confused because the flat washer was on the wrong side of the variator when I took it apart.
