Bummer!, I checked like 8 times to make sure I had the outer seal and its friends cause I do that stuff all the time.

Bad thing was I checked 3 times then lost the bearings off the end when I put it into the press. I just put everything back on the axle without thinking. Then when I got through, well see the picture. It is not my most triumphant bone headed move though.

You might post where you got it. I remember in Coizs' thread he said he couldn't find a clear one. I found one in Texas a couple years ago, but they wanted double the price.
