Alrighty, carrier bearings: How far are they supposed to press on? Is there a spec or anything? The reason I ask is that there is a rather large fillet on the new billet posi case half that doesn't (seem to) allow the bearing to press flush against the case. I can hold it up to a light source and see maybe 0.030" of daylight where it won't set completely flush. The axle end of the bearing is within 0.010" of being flush. I'm afraid that once together and set up, the "forces within" while under load, will change as the bearings seat further...
