Ratech makes a really neat little tool for checking your pinion depth too. 10007 is the part number, it's about $20.

Well it sounded like the solid spacer would be better to me also. Solid and new bearings it shall be. Thanks!

Rick

Do you guys order a second bearing and open the ID on it so you don't have to press the bearing off and on while setting it up?

I just open up the one I am using. I have some 1" sanding rolls and a mandrel from Menard's that I use in a die grinder. It takes about a minute to polish the bearing out and it saves tons of time. I wash them out with lacquer thinner before assembly to keep the grit out.

I have seen huge arguments over whether or not you should open up the actual bearing, but people who do rears for a living usually agree that it hurts nothing. Pinion nut torque is what holds it together anyway. Very Happy

sometimes they slip on and sometimes not.

I have a spare old one that I use for setup now... it's loose.

Sometimes it's needed to open up one to get in on without beting everything else up.

I agree with Dennis - Probably okay!
