    Got a qiuck question, I'm changing my cam needle bearing and I need to know when they are installed correctlty, should the numbers that are on the bearings face out? and how far do I push them in? looks like to me that they could go in father then flush with the case. Thanks

    I STRONGLY suggest using an appropriate installation tool for these bearings (please use the Torrington bearings) rather than something make-shift. You can get the tool from HD, Jims or George's Garage. For the latter, see here:

    got the tools that are required, just wanted to make sure I pushed them in far enough. Thanks for your input.
