First, this is great info.

It actually confirms my thought about the second cone: The cone closest to the truck does all the work - squishing against the king pin and not the second cone. Obviously the second cone squishes some but a lot less than originally thought.

Anyway there it is. A yellow vs triple cones. Enjoy
So what you are saying the the washer vs cup makes little difference. Don't tell Doc that.
