Looked at my 1980 Maxi Sport for comparison. Under main Chrome cap on top there is NO washer, flat of flanged. The yoke looks like it has a tight fitting plastic insert, and everything is tight and smooth. I haven't seen any kind of insert like that in any of the parts diagrams. Can't tell if it is bonded to the yoke somehow or just tight fit, but the yoke is basically flat where the tube comes through.

On my problem child 78, it had this tapered washer. Honestly it looks more like a race washer, but the yoke is "depressed" where the taper would fit down in. Maybe this was a rigged solution? IDK. So, I'm going to try taking the yoke off and see if I can hammer the lip down around the hole and tighten up the opening. I don't want to bugger the threads on the tube, so I will wrap them tight with teflon tape and see how tight I can get it and protect the tube. Frustrating little problem, but I will persevere. If that don't work, I guess it's a good excuse to buy a new fork set with hydraulic shocks and an option for a front disc! ;-)
