Ok so i set about changing my lower bearings.
Unfortunately when the motor side came out these two load springs fell.
I did post asking about them without a pic but had no joy on a reply.
So this evening i went back at it with camera and got some pics.
Now Delta show only one on the assembly drawings but the little info i can find on the web has one post somewhere mentioning that some guys have found up to three.
Here is my bearing
So my questions to you all is do these two go in like this "back to back"
or stacked next to each other. If stacked which way. To my knowledge they meant to press against the outer ring of the bearing.
Then how tight do i make the nut. Because boy i battled to get it looose but you cannot tighten an arrangement like this or you end up with the bearings loaded axially and thats not how they are designed.
Also can i put a spacer between the wheel and the bearing on the shaft on the wheel side so that the wheel is up against the centre ring of the bearing when the nut is tightened down.
On this arrangement . One side is fixed to the shaft then goes into the casting and the other side slides on and gets secured with one nut.
