Bearing fit, how much interferance?

Post by bobnorton » Mon May 17, 2010 11:58 pm

My gearbox input shaft case bearing is a very tight fit and tightens up,Its a c3 as spec and i have tried a spare with the same result, now getting technical to find the reason,if necessary may get the outer race reduced.
