Don't set the fingers on the bench and forget it. Set the fingers after everything is installed on the flywheel.

I would say setting on bench is a bad idea! --- you want the clutch in its real world to accurately set them.---like in the run position, then make all the adjustments from there as per specs.
I cant give any advice on what type works or not since I have never had one go out and the main cub I use for everything has whatever came in it 25 years ago and I use it hard. --- granted no snow pushing or loader---thats what my yard machines 10 hp 28" 2-stage blower, and the skidloaders ( if needed), are for----way faster than blade and snow is gone---with blades you keep piling it higher to the point you run out of room and it just blows in deeper.---PLUS I dont do winter to start with, so I am not gonna be out there messin with a cub trying to start them in the cold. Blower sits in the little shed---110-volt starter on it, plug in to outlet, push button and go! ----life is good! LOL!! --- Not really good but you get the picture!

Got my parts on the bench and rolled the Cub into the barn (shop). I’m working by myself but I doubt it’ll take me more than a day or two to get it split, fixed and back together.
I did go to the auto style roller bearing for as much curiosity as possible longevity.
Once it’s back together I’ll be able to form my own opinion on it over a graphite TO bearing.
