I'll keep all the above in mind. Right now I don't ever have a frame welded up or any axles or wheels. I'm months away from a hop up kit. However - thanks for all the info.

One of you gentlemen could have at least maybe hinted that "Speedster" was spelled wrong in the Subject of my thread.confused smiley
Just saw this tonight and reported it. Hopefully it will get changed soon. My spelling has always been terrible but honest, that was a typo.
I be gone now.

That's an example of reading what you expect to read, I hadn't spotted the misspelling, I read it as speedster, because that's what my brain (such as it is) expected. Probably a lot of the others were the same.

I do it all the time. Think one thing and type something else. And with age it doesn't get better. I love those paragraphs you see on the web where half the letters are missing from every word but you can still read it perfectly. Don't know what was in my head when I typed "Steed" instead of "Speed". I really do know the difference between a horse and how fast it can run. Oh well. Better get back on topic here.
Still waiting for parts before I can start welding on the frame for my SPEEDSTER. No new photos as yet.

Not too sure I should be considered a "New Builder"? Maybe best at this time to keep it a "new Assembler". So far I have a workbench full of parts, some steel and a new (to me) 50 year old Sears Roebuck bandsaw. (Photo below) It's in great shape just needs tons of clear up. Figured a $43 fifty year old saw is better then a brand new Home Deport special.
Now with all the pleasantries out of the way --- I have a question. You folks will get real tired of hearing that phase. I got my rear axle bearing this afternoon. Running a Peerless diff so got 4 bearing, 4 mounts and 8 flangettes. (that almost sounds like a bad word) Anyway, each bearing has a little 'tit' on the outer race and the flangettes don't have a matching notch or grove for the tit to fit into. Flangette on that side wouldn't fit. The tit is just a little ball I could snap off with a pair of pliers but not sure I should. Help! Photo below.

Bearing holder looks like they all do. Use two for each bearing.

These are the ones I have used. I'm not sure what you have there.
The set I buy comes complete with the flangettes and mounting weldment.

That's the same bearing I have. Same two set screws and all. Ordered everything as a set from OMB. ???? Just all four outer races have a little tit. Looks like a very small ball bearing. ??? I think I'll quit thinking about it and pop the darn thing off. Doesn't really look like they belong there anyway.

Just went out and pulled one of the little pins out of the bearing. It didn't fall apart so guess I'll pull the other three out.

By the way, there's three holes in each bearing. Part number UC205-1K Maybe someone can tell me just what the heck OMB sold me.

I'd call them, I get lots of parts from them and they are pretty good to deal with.

The third hole is centered on the max diameter correct. The knob is intended to maintain static alignment during installation. There are several types of flanges available, in our application we use the symmetrical version and the knob should be placed in the bearing cage center line hole. Flanges are available which allows the bearing to be mounted off to one side which is not ideal for our application.

I have always knocked the tit off with no issues whatever.
