I am having trouble getting my pegs on. I am not sure what to do with this spacer and the little nut that sticks off of the peg. I actually smushed the edge of one of the nuts. Any ideas?Photo

That washer goes in the inside of the peg

Yeah, inside.

However, if you have short axles, it's better to not run a spacer at all. You always want maximum thread engagement, so sometimes running a spacer will be more dangerous and the peg isn't "on there" as good as it can be without a spacer.

*washer

You don't need the washer at all, the peg acts as a washer

Don't use a washer. The peg is the washer. That nut is to keep the peg from spinning. It goes in the dropout slot.

Everyone makes rookie mistakes.. I remember completely ruining my first hub (bearings and all) by trying to pull the axle out the wrong way.. my dumbass didn't think of removing it drive side.. you live; you learn I guess lmao.
P.S. Didn't manage to get the axel out but by the way. Ended up tossing the hub in the bin
