The bronze bushes in the forks have a recess machined in the face which faces the fork link. The idea is that the rubber sealing washer sits in the recess, the steel washer fits over the top of the rubber washer, and fitting the fork link holds it all in place. It's not a great sealing method, but I guess it's better than nothing!

Thanks Steve! I thought that was right, but as you stated it’s not very good. The seal ring doesn’t fit well.
Thanks again
