Try asking a real question. You could also try picking up a copy of Zinn's Road Bike maintenance book as it has a section on rebuilding ergo levers. As noted above, the Campy Only web site has a discussion on rebuilding ergo levers here.

This is my question (I first wanted to know if there were others who did it):
I have both the Campagnolo drawing of the Ergopower and the official Campa video with instructions, BUT...
the problem is that in the video, they show a small gold coloured ring that fits exactly in the cam's bottom part (EC-AT061 Record model), but in my Daytona Ergopower there is no gold coloured ring and of course I got the rings mixed up. I rebuilt the EP with a small ring in the cam. This one seems to be smaller then the one in the video, but there is no wider ring in my EP.

Did you experience the same thing? Do you remember if this part fit exactly into the cam?

Is there a way to tell which ring is which if you happen to mix them up? The drawings are not to scale and I can not tell from any drawing I know, which ring is which.

I have not rebuilt an ergo lever.

I looked at the exploded drawings on the Campy web site, my Quality catalog, and the Zinn book and I see the part you're referencing. From the Quality catalog, it looks like there is a bearing, a spacer, and another bearing. On Record and Chorus models, a washer sits between the second bearing and the index gear, while this is not present on Daytona and lower models. My 2001 Quality catalog only shows exploded diagrams and parts lists for 2000 and prior model year levers.

There is at least one and probably two shop owners who make a living rebuilding Campy levers over in the rec.bicycles.tech newsgroup. You may want to ask your question there.
