Now for the tense part. Did you get the two (2!!!) washers out also? 
You MUST be sure that they are BOTH there and didn't drop down in the 

I suggest that to get them out you stick a stiff brass wire down 
their center and thru the pilot bearing in the case, then slide them 
up with a magnet while leaving the wire in place. Use brass or copper 
wire so the magnet won't stick to it, and use the wire so that when 
the washers stick and fall down they can't fall out of place.

Once you are sure that you have both washers, stick the wire back in 
first, thru the pilot bearing at the bottom again, and then slide the 
washers down around it. Use the wire to align the washers at the 
bottom of the hole and don't remove it until both washers are in
