You need to be sure it is a washer and not a shim. The washer(s) will go on the nut side of the axel outside of the fork, shims will go inside the fork to center the tire.

SOURCE: How do Fill Front Forks?
YOU FILL FORKS BY TAKING THE CAPS OFF AT THE TOP BY UN DOING WITH A SPANNER BUT YOU MUST DO THIS WHILE THE FRONT IS OF THE GROUND AND THERE IS NO WEIGHT PUSHING THE FORKS AND YOU NEED THE MANUAL TO SEE HOW MUCH FLUID GOES INTO THE FORKS EXAMPLE IT WILL SAY (13CM FROM TOP) THIS MEANS FROM THE TOP OFF THE FORK YOU MEASURE 13CM FROM TOP TILL THE OIL HITS THE 13CM GOOD LUCK

I have a slightly older springer, but they are probably the same. The shop manual says in reference to the acorn nuts on top of the spring restraints, "Tighten acorn nuts to 30-35 ft-lbs torque."

Have the balance checked on the front tire, My heritage springer did the same thing and the front tire had slung the weight off of the front tire causing it to be unbalanced and bounce causing a vibration at speeds of 30mph on up.

It sounds like the little silver box with two hookups that you're talking about is actually a circuit breaker, not the starter relay.
The starter relay is a small black plastic cube about one inch in size. It's usually located down on the front side of rear fender below the oil tank on the right side of the bike. It's attached to the fender with a rivet most of the time.
The part you have is actually an earlier model. The way you tell is by the letter after the second number in the part number. On Harley part numbers, the first five digits denote the actual part. The next two numbers indicate the first year that this part or version of the part was used. Example xxxxx-79 means this part was first used in 1979. Now, if there is a letter following the number such as 79B, this means that the part has had a minor modification made from the original design. A "B" part is an earlier model than a "C" part. Very similar to the military's "A1", "A2", and "A3" designations.
Now, if you decide to exchange the part, if you can, you may wish to try to get the relay that has the weatherproof "shield" on it. They make one for your bike and the location of this relay on a Softail makes it extremely vulnerable to wet conditons. If you've already purchased the part, a lot of dealers will not refund on electrical parts. Maybe they'll swap it out, otherwise use the one you've got. The relay simply plugs into the connector on the wiring harness.
