Engine Spigot Bearing

PostPost by: sepans » Fri Aug 24, 2018 6:31 pm

Hi, I am rebuilding a 4 bolt crankshaft engine, and need to know which way the brass Spigot bearing is fitted flat side towards the crankshaft or lipped side. In my defence I did not remove the said bearing, and don`t want to give myself problem.
Many Thanks

I thought with a 4 bolt Crank there was a Bronze Bush not a Needle Roller with a Lip.
