I need help reinstalling the top steering bearings. The service manual has it like this picture but after reassembling, no matter what I do, I have two issues:

-the rubber gasket between the two lock nuts squishes when trying to torque to 13ft lbs. it wants to “walk” out of the space between the two nuts.
-the steering stem is no longer flush with the top triple clamp.
is the top bearing spacer supposed to be on top of the bearing , or under? Service manual shows it on top but it fits under also and gives clearance that I need. I saw a video (albeit an mt07) and the spacer was under the bearing.
