I've a project 1950's D1 I'm building from bits, & for which I'm looking to confirm I've understood the function of the 'sliding member' tube.
That tube part 90-4115 is bushed internally & the Service Sheet indicates the need for alignment of the tube to the grease nipple on the rear wheel carrier 90-6051 which is then secured in place by it's pinch bolt.
At which point the rear wheel carrier is effectively 'locked' onto the tube.
The steel washers, springs, & shrouds are all obvious in their placement around the sliding member tube. That complete assembly is then compressed and placed into position in the frame. Then the centre column 90-4117 slots are set up so they will align with the frames pinch bolt holes. That centre column is then drifted through the sliding member tube & bolted.
This is how I've assembled the units, but it looks like I've created 'rigid' suspension !
As I see it the only way anything 'slides' on this setup, would be if the rear wheel carrier 90-6051 has its pinch bolt removed - What have I missed !?

the outer tube 4113 slids along tube 4117 and the wheel spindle holders 90- 6050 & 6o51 MUST BE bolted tite to tube 4113 with the grease hole in line for the grease niple to load grease between both tubes ,, it sounds like you got it rite you usly have to put all your body wate on the to move them to chech bush 90- 6050 & 6051 thay will move a bit sideways until the wheel is fited
