Lost nut... for a qualcast classic petrol 35s

Hello

First post - spent some time lurking before saying hello.

I seem to have lost the spindle nut, spring washer and washer from the left of the roller spindle - no doubt I've put if somewhere very clever on disassembly and it'll show up as soon as I get down to the ironmonger...

However, that's not the real problem, it can be replaced easily enough.  The problem is working out the precise re-assembly - which I'm sure would make more sense with all the bits...  The online parts diagrams are of an older design which don't seem to include the some parts and so not precisely what I am looking at.

Copied below some pics for reference (should have taken them before I pulled it apart...).

My question - I can't for the life of me make sense of the reassembly of the spindle nut, spring washer and washer in combination with the aluminium casting and drive belt shield bit of angle iron.  I've read this recent post with interest, but it doesn't quite fill in all the gaps:

washer marking shown by yellow arrows

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I've drawn a couple of yellow arrows which show a washer mark.

Again, I've drawing a couple of yellow arrows which seem to show another washer mark.

Here the yellow arrows show what seems to me to be insufficient thread to get a washer and nut over...

So, I'm confused-
Does the nut, spring washer and washer go next to the aluminium casting only, under the angle iron and the spindle end only locates the angle iron (but then why the washer mark on the angle iron)?
Does the nut, spring washer and washer go next to the aluminium casting and another nut and washer go next to the angle iron (but there doesn't seem enough thread on the spindle)?
Does the nut, spring washer and washer go next to the angle iron and not next to the aluminium casting (but that doesn't seem sensible and then why the washer mark on the aluminium casting)?

Confused

PS I see wristpin has just re-posted to Dropbox some of the information from thread I linked to above - wristpin, if you could do that again, it'd be much appreciated.

Many thanks.
