6" front brake

6" front brake

Can anyone tell me the correct sequence for the spacers and washers on the normal 6" FB front hub. I could do it with trial and error but it makes life easier if someone know.
So spacers and the depth of them and where are washers used. Am I right in thinking one wheel nut is longer and floats until the wedge is tight. The other bottoms in the recessed nut?

Thanks Ken

Am I right in thinking the nuts float to let the fork legs equalize and then clamp with the wedges . I know one side goes into the recessed deep nut.

Best to pull up the brake side first to get maximum engagement with the brake stop, do up the wedge that side, then tighten up the opposite side and do up that wedge
