Thank you for your reply fred, I have always pressed the bearing on first then coller , i guess i will re-measure all the related components for wear, might try heating the coller in oil with a hot plate before pressing it on , im running the car at the drag strip when i have time on the weekends in summer but i dont think thats the issue,C6ZZKGT wrote:Chuck, All of my NOS Ford bearings are FMCC or FPP and I am unclear as to who those names relate to. Keep in mind that the retainer does need to be pressed on with a fair amount of pressure to keep it from moving. I at one time thought that I could just hammer it on and all would be good but the axle would slowly walk out of the bearing. Pressing it on fixed the issue.
