Can anyone tell me how the "Differential Bearing retainers" (part # 2, group 7 page 5) should be installed.

There is a small hole, probably an oil passage along the inside rim close to the bearing chase. I thought these holes should be at the bottom but the bolt holes will not line up to allow that. Any ideas?

Also the o ring I purchased for this location is a little large and fits sloppy. The other side was tight. Should I get another o ring and try again?

I kept all the parts seperated and marked as to the side they came from. If I replace the shims back to the orginal location is there anything else I need to consider?

And lastly my cub doesn't appear to have ever had part # 7 or 5 (fender plate support) shown on page 8 or group 13. Did some models come with out this or should I try to locate them? (My cub is a 49)

As always I appreciate any assistance.

I think the holes you refer to should be on top... as a way for the oil to get to the bearing.

The parts you refer to as #5 and #7 fender supports are used only on Lo-Boys.

The bearing retainers will only fit one way where all the holes line up. There are no choices to be made with regard to orientation.

That's how it appeared to me but my mechanic friend thought they should be on the bottom. As always you guys are great.
