Fork rebuild, no washer??

I am installing new springs and the Race Tech emulators on my wee. Short version of what happened. I carefully took apart each leg, draining the fork oil into a pan. On one leg, there was no washer on the damper bolt. At least it seems that way, no washer in the pan or on the floor. Any suggestions for a replacement?? I'm going to look in hardware stores tomorrow for a possible substitute, don't want to wait and order it.

When in doubt, gas it!!!

I'll bet your washer is still stuck in the fork leg recess. Both of mine had to be fished out. Maybe at the factory they get a little Loc-tite on the washer when they are installing the bolt.
