Please confirm that the front axle bushing/spacer goes with the recessed groove (red arrow) facing the wheel bearing, and the non-grooved end faces the inside of the fork leg. Thanks!

Actually it probably goes in the trash pile. That looks like grease seal wear into the bushing surface.

 

You might at least turn it around. Put a little grease on the bushing & in the seal lips so it doesn't wear again.

I didn't know what a new one looked like so thanks for the head's up. I will reverse it and grease it as you say. Regular pink-ish wheel bearing grease OK?

Yes, that will be fine. 

 

Put a thin coat of grease on the full length of the axle also as that prevents corrosion & makes removal in the future easier.
