B230 Intermediate Shaft Bearings fitment
Im a fan of doing things properly, much to my own detriment at times. Rebuilding my b230FB decided to change the aux shaft bearings. I'm now having nightmare fitment issues with installing shaft.
Made sure the positions were correct as all 3 are slightly different sizes. Largest at front, smallest at rear. Pressed in easy enough... now close to impossible to install aux shaft without brute force and mallet. Bound up and won't turn without 30+ lbft.
I know that some of these bearings supplied have to be line bored to spec after installation, but I double checked that these specific ones were pre-machined. I'm at a loss. Maybe I could use a brake hone to slowly work away some material? Anyone had this issue before? would love to not have to pay for more machining on this build! 😬
