Hmmm, do you mean that the spacer between the bearings has a specific orientation? One side must always be facing out?Three B's Racing wrote:...

The first bearings were tightened with an impact gun then backed off a hair to reduce the stiction. Subsequently, a wise local Datsun guru recommended I giver the whole nine yards, so on the current set I ran my Princess Auto Power Fist corded gun for a bit... Frankly I've got a proper torque wrench and should have gotten off my ass to confirm the specs and torqued properly.
No the spacer orentation doesn't matter. What matters is that the letter on the spacer matches the letter on the housing. Letters represent different spacer lengths and housing lenth tolerances. Holy Crap! your Guru recommended impact that sucker on there tight eyeah baby? i wouldn't let a mechanic like that change the air in my tires you kidding me? That nut takes I believe a requires 240ft lbs of torque and hitting it with an impact then backing it out a bit is like russian roulette with 3 rounds in the tumbler its 50/50.
