There are as you know a number of variables involved with this.Not that it matters much,but who's crank did you buy??. Just a question in ref to machining tolerances. Take nothing for granted.Measure everything.What does the crank manufacture tell you the clearances should be given your application??. Sometimes given who's crank you bought you find you have to use two different bearing haft's of different sizes to set the clearance's you want.
