It's a use- once thing.


The second time, it just falls out again.


I've tried reusing them, and it never works.


The nut crushes the lock ring, and then a relief in the nut holds the ring

in place by compression.  Once that compression is released, like the magic

smoke, it just doesn't seem to want to rejoin the party.

Well if one is able to lure it out without it noticing what’s going on then one might be able to convince it to play along.

I notice the output flange has a small groove. (marked in yellow).  The original lock-ring must have required a deformation, that fit into this groove, to hold it in place. 


Once installed, I will use a small drift to notch old lock-ring, and see if that works to affix it in place.
