i know there has been a couple of threads already about the thrust bearings but none i could find to answer my questions. i bought my beam used so i dont have the instructions and i didnt build it from new so i have some questions(i checked out the manual on-line). my beam has the thrust bearing grips and i needed to first change the spindle/feather shaft. the new shafts i bought came with 4 shafts and some nuts and spacers. my question is what to do with
the the spacers? it came with two kinds, one has a beveled edge on one side and flat on the other. the other kind is beveled on both sides??
i would assume that the single beveled or coned edge goes between
the grip and the head block, coned side towards the bearing in the grip. what is the double coned/beveled spacer for?? does it go inside the grip between the two diffrent sized bearings??
i also notice that the new feathering shafts are longer than the one that i took out? could the old one i have be wrong and maybe the previous owner had the non-thrusted shaft installed??
thanks for any help!!
