I can see on my Studebakers where one would use an external tooth lock washer or an internal. Why would you want the difference ???.....Brad

Brad,

Here is a site I had bookmarked that shows a lot of different toothed lockwashers with brief descriptions of the use(s):

Now, why Studebaker engineers decided to use certain lockwashers in certain places, that I can't tell you<G>.

Good info- but was surprised that they didn't list the split-ring lock washer, by far the most common... whaa?[:0]

That page was only toothed lock washers. Split lock (technically helical spring) washers are on this page:

I went to "home" ( complete listing of washers at "home" ) and bookmarked the company, printed info on both types of washers and put the info in my parts manual....Brad
