    Question about crank bearings

    Anybody ever heard of crushed bearings for the cranks? They don't use the pins to hold the bearing in place. Instead, when you torque the cases down it holds them in place. Anybody ever heard of these types of bearings before or used them for that matter?

    Not sure what they are called but I have installed cranks in the GPR that had a rubber like ring around them that kept the bearing from spinning instead of the standard pin. It threw me a loop also so I called them up...sure enough no pins....

    That is a crankworks thing I have had them like that. I believe shooter is talking about something else, but I have no idea what it is.

    We are about to to the front of the crank, I'll take pics next time. They look like the stock oem crank bearings except no pin and the edges are tapered instead of cornered like the stock ones.
