After removing the cush-drive plate, I discovered that the O ring fits beneath it, not in the bearing recess. Not easy to see that from the parts diagram.

On top of it all, I knew it had to do with protecting the rubber dampers from grease contamination.

Damn damn damn Ouch

Everything back together now. I made up a new bearing spacer and LH spacer to go against the caliper caliper. Gutsibits handily note the dimensions for these on the website, which made the job much easier. That is all except the width for the LH spacer which, turned out to be 6mm, which centres the caliper on the disc perfectly.
Got a few jobs to do on the 850T now, so the Convert will have to come off the ramp for a while, before I can move on to some more re-commissioning on it.

one note the bearing spacer on the left, known as a top hat , looks nowt like it BUT it is a round disc with a raised flat one side and what looks like a thin raised ridge t'other ...NB the thin rsised ridge sits on the wheel side so it runs on the bearing correctly put it flat side to the bearing the wheel will wobble ...I only did that once when I first got the bike.... cast wheels do not have this spacer

Thanks Ken. 
I discovered the consequence of getting the top hat spacer the wrong way round. It was binding the wheel as was tightening the spindle. Obvious when you think about it Embarrassed

That's interesting. My Convert has cast wheels and I discovered one of these top-hats lying on my bench which I could not find a home for. I am now a little worried as I am currently riding the bike without it fitted - has anyone got a parts list for the cast wheels on a convert please?

There are various sources - I've found this one consistently useful:  http://www.tlm.nl/en/parts/new-parts/partsmanuals/

Got that one thanks. I was just wondering if there is a version showing the cast wheels on the convert. I have looked at manuals for other models with cast wheels & there is no sign of a top hat spacer, so it remains a mystery.

The Spada rear wheel (cast) doesn't seem to have it.

If there is room to fit it, it can't do any harm I guess. It will only affect the amount the wheel spindle will project from the swing arm on the left side. But it would be good to get a definitive answer.
