    I not sure you should have a clearance fit between the main drive gear and the large bearing. I measured my main drive gear and got 1.575" OD and the ID of my (6208-2RS) bearing is 1.574". That would seem about right for a very light interference fit.

    Like I was saying in post #69 the mainshaft I bought checked out to be straight. The keyways leave something to be desired (post #46) but all things considered a great product and I recommend you as a provider. The problem seems to be in how I installed the 208PP sealed bearing, I'm guessing it was cocked slightly. Removed and am installing a different one to eliminate that variable. At this point I'm considering changing from heating the case to freezing the bearing.
    I don't mean to brag but; I put together a puzzle in only a week when the box clearly said "2-4 years".

    I agree, my memory failed me I believe and that's my only excuse. It wasn't a clearance fit at all it was a very light interference fit as you describe. In hindsight I was probably just being OCD on not wanting the main drive gear to spin inside of the bearing. More likely the bearing was cocked slightly.
