Should I make an aluminum slug for inside the spindle snout, or are you suggesting that I make a solid crush sleeve for. Ethernet the bearings?The polish marks from the outer race says it's doing the funky chicken. Needs solid spacers to make up for the out of spec OD.
How thick is the face plate on that? 1/2"?
Not enough room for that, unfortunately. I ground it out much deeper that the original chamfer I put when I first made the spindles.Crush sleeve.
Also, how much room between the face plate and the hub? Enough to press a chamfered ring over the weld and weld it on spreading out the load?
I have made some by putting dykem on the snout pressing bearing tight by hand and scratching a line in it to imagine thats where outer bearing sits. Then remove it all and put inner bearing and hold outer bearing at that scratch and measure between them. Then cut and it will be a little long. Then machine them down until its right bearing preload. To get close on first shot I assemble and use dial indicator to measure hub slop in/out and if it measures 50 thou I machine that then sneak up on the bearing preload. Otherwise I've done 10 thou at a time and it takes a whileWhat is the best way to measure for a solid crush sleeve?
