Installing a new fork question.
#1
On the top of a traditional 1" threaded fork you install the bearing retainer, threaded race, keyed washer and lock nut. All of this went ok although I have to take it apart and replace the lower fork crown face. The compression nut on the very top is where I have the problen. The fork is 1/2 inch too long. Can I use spacers to fill the gap between the lock nut and the very top compression nut? Or do I have to take it in and have it cut?

Yes, you can use spacers. They do not need to be keyed.

your threads just need to be below the top race of course.
