That is not a lock washer.
You need to use that washer as designed, or you will be rebuilding the arbor again very soon.

That thrust washer keeps the nut from rubbing on the bearing center race. Without it, the face/edges of nut will abrade the bearing, creating metal shavings, or worse exposing the bearings as it rips up the bearing shield.

Did you damage anything during disassembly and leave burrs somewhere, creating interference?
Unless you replaced the arbor, or bearing retaining nut; that washer should fit?

Sorry, but it absolutely is… the washer engages in the key slot and then part of it is bent up to lock the arbor nut from spinning. However, IIRC, it goes on before the outer spanning nut, which is already installed in the photo.

Cheers,

Brad,

Attchached is the exploded view showing how the arbor parts go together. It shows the lock washer goes in after the bearing retaining/spanning nut.

This is what I ended up doing. Bent the sides of lock nut onto the nut to hold nut in place.
