Got a freehub to bolt on a M900 hub, the old one didn't have a washer behind it.
Took a freehub off an M760 hub and it had a wahser, looks to be a good idea as the area of the freehub hub is pretty small.
So, washer no washer that is the question?

Personally i would install it. It shouldn't do any harm as you have to adjust rear mech limits anyway.

With it insatalled.....

pushes body and cassette out 1mm or so. I don't expect any isuues.

without it....

Again, all should be well but, If the cassette you install gets too comfy with spokes, things may happen. Especially the cassettes that are 'spidered' rather than 6 riveted and the rest loose.

To realise you need a space afterwards may result in stripping the whole bloody lot out...grease...lost bearings...oh my!

I suppose you could always do a dry run before re-installing the axle see which works best. with or without vs cassette to be used.
