the bump in the ring is supposed to go in a slot in the threaded area of the fork.

Looks like the fork's steer tube is not keyed (notched)? Wonder why, so you'll have to file down the nub on the washer or replace it.

Can I just leave that ring out. or should I remove the nub from it?

File it down with a dremel, works every time. Dont remove it completely though. It is there for a reason
