Installed the bearings in the cases. Heated each case (one at a time) in the oven set at 300 degrees for about 10 minutes each (they didn't actually reach that temp) and stuck the bearings in the freezer. Then popped them in their bores till fully seated, gently tapped and drifted to make sure they were parallel with the flats for sure, as well as checked the ball bearing to ensure it too was parallel with a dial caliper. Installing crank and bolting up the cases, checking everything for flat cylinder base, smooth rotation, ensure there will be no leaks etc is next.
i was going to try and get the bullet back together over the holiday ,but have had a few problems , fitting the crank the bearing on the drive side was very very tight .i pressed it on using spacers and the drive nut .then when trying to bolt up there seemed to be a problem it would not spin when tightened.i have had a devil of a job trying to part the drive side case off .the only thing i can see is on the drive side the ball race, spacer then the inner roller bearing seems tobe proud of the out race ,,,, if that makes sense ,should it be flush , a nd is there different spacers ??help!!!!john
