If c-ring was not needed, the factory would not have wasted the time machining a groove for it nor have wasted the money buying it.

Its not realy a c ring or snap ring. Its a c shaped piece of metal with three threaded holes. The bolts go through the case and bolt in on the sealed bearings race. Its evermore being a pain to get the thing to line up with the bolt holes in the case.
