Trinity Switchblade 12

I recently purchased a used Spashette edition Switchblade 12 pan car and I need some help with the diff. It didn't come with instructions and none are available online and I need help with the rear diff.

Is there supposed to be a thrust bearing on the spur side of the rear axle? My car only has one bellville washer and the nylon axle nut and the only way to keep the spur from slipping is to tighten the nut so much that the rear axle becomes almost solid with no diff action at all.

An exploded diagram would greatly help or some other picture of how the rear axle assembly goes together. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Steve

The diff only uses one cone washer,this goes up against the bearing ,open side down(cone facing away from bearing)then the diff nut follows.
