I think it was an old technical thread he was quoting. See the tabs over the grey-sided left-side "Made in Germany" bearing in the photo I quoted? Those are to be ground off on the 002 transaxles. I personally wonder what the effects are of leaving the tabs on, since a few here did just that.

Not relevant to the point that I was making, namely that I am a sheep who followed the directions that Long Enterprises provided. I had a picture of grinding off the tabs. But here is the image further up:

The above image is Chloe's output shaft bearing with what looks like a steel end cap.
Is that a rubber sealed bearing in his image? That would definitely not want those two tabs. They might not be a problem at first, but when end play increases, those tabs would chew . . . :rabbit:
