Ok somebody wanted some action, "It's been toooo quite here" now I'm here building a Bat 50 Sport!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Question:
3 Bearing blocks,(main shaft) Lower one (flange) faces down against cluch bell the two upper ones face each other is this correct?
First gasser build and I think I might be driving the quick guys nuts.

The Kit: EXCELLENT, I just wanna do it right this time hence the name.
Thanks in advance
Greg

On the main shaft. The two upper blocks have the small opening(flange) toward each other, lower toward clutch just as you stated. If you were pressing them out....it would be like this. Top block installed where bearing would come out of the top of block. Second block it would press out toward bottom, and bottom block would press out upward. With these builds I usually think of it as always having a piece of the assembly against the side of the block that the bearing would come out of......make sense?

Thanks guys!!!! confusion in the definition I always thought the flange end was the part that stopped something from falling through.
When I finally read through the instructions????

In some cases, the flange helps the bearing keep from coming up out of the block as well. This way, even if the block were to develope play in it over time and the bearing not seat well, the bearing would still stay in. Of course to develope play in these blocks takes a long long time, or a few crashes...
