I can see that, but it doesn't explain why the new bearings MEASURE smaller than the old bearings. I pressed (yes I had to use a press) a couple old bearings back into these nose drives, and everything'* tight. The new bearings fall right in.
Like I said, give me some time to find out more info on my end, and talk to Chris. I'd like to sort this out, not just for myself, but for everybody here. Like I said before, I've used Chris' stuff before too and not had problems. I think he'* a great guy. When I initially read this topic a few weeks ago, I too brushed it off as just a bad nosedrive. Then when I started having the same problem, with 3 different new NTN bearings, I remembered this topic and started to thing that maybe there'* a problem here.
