    sc needle bearings under gear

    Need to know...

    When installing the needle bearings that goes under the gear, I removed the white tape that was holding the bearings together but there is still some type of wax (clear and really thin strip) holding them. Do I remove that wax or it will melt with the heat??

    Thanks!

    The wax is there to hold the bearings in place to make installation easier. It will melt away with the heat.

    Since you are here and asking about the needle bearings,

    A little trick I use is get a bit of fine thread and wrap it around the needles when they are on the shaft and then work the thread a little until they are all nice and tight on the shaft.

    Then put the gear on and remove the thread when the gear is on 1/2 way.



    Maybe that's Jerry's technique.

    my technique is to install the gear and use some twizzers to install them one by one
    this is only when you no longer have the wax on them
