All 3 will lock the rotor.  Go straight in with your locking tool and slowly turn the rotor to engage a hole in the rotor.  Be sure to go straight in to keep from damaging the centrifugal switch assembly.

Thanks. My switch sounds a bit noisy. Could be normal.

Can you tell me the sequence of how those washers are mounted?

Thanks Russ, looks like the small washer rides in the slots of the contact plates.

That is correct. 2 large fiber washers per shoulder screw top and bottom. Roughly 4+ smaller fiber washers in between to guide and INSULATE the spring tensioned centrifugal contact from the shoulder screw and rotor.
