First, welcome to the forum.

As to your question...
...mostly I'm not sure with all you are saying, but, if you are asking about the fork legs, I'd think the brake mounts should make it obvious which is left, or right.

Why ain't we ridin'?

As he's re-chroming the staunchings I would think fork tubes.
That's about all I understood.

Yes he means fork tubes or stanchions. The question posed: Inside at least one of the forks was a washer or nut
He wants to know which fork this goes in, can it be removed now, and is it needed with upgrade to Progressive brand springs

Seems like I read something about a spacer-washer in Clymer repair book?
Doesnt it get tossed out when doing the upgrade springs??

Note for OP: Buy 1 QT bottle of 15-weight fork oil- your choice of brand, Each fork tube needs approx 11 oz with Prog springs-
They displace more fluid, so you use less fluid than is called for stock.

Also for OP and gurus- isnt just the top slider section of the forks chromed?
with the outer or lower half of fork leg having a plain finish inside- not chrome?

Which means only the top part of the forks goes to the plating shop
Or am I wrong again?

Gigg: did each fork contain 2 springs with a washer between them.,is that what you found- a loose washer now?
OR you see something in bottom of lower section - stuck like its welded on?

He lost me after hi. Mentioning bagged and tagged didn't help either, I thought of the Sherriff of Nottingham upset at Robin Hood for getting a buck or stag or whatever the forest rats are called over there. Numpty had me google translating the meaning.

Seriously, the issue is the fork tubes and a washer. It is not needed with progressive springs, I am not certain of the pastic washer that you mentioned though. Best of luck to you.

Seems like some of you who replied are being willfully dense. The original post is not at all hard to understand and chiming in with useless comments is a poor way to welcome a forum user.

Kudos to Aloha Tom for actually trying to help this gentleman!

bagged and tagged is clearly a statement that when removing the small parts he placed them in separate ziplocks-
with a tag indicating which fork leg they came from!

Now he has a part he cant identify, and which fork it goes to, we need a pic Gigg please!
