Front sprocket lock washer direction
I went to change my chain and sprockets, only to find that the retaining nut and lock washer were both missing from the front sprocket.
I ordered the parts, but I'm not sure which direction the washer is supposed to face. Are those flanges supposed to face inward toward the shaft, so that when the nut is tightened down on top of it they bend and apply pressure against the nut? That's what I would assume, but they seem fairly pronounced, and they're also not evenly distributed around the circumference. I wasn't sure if they would be serving a different purpose by facing outward.
