Hi guys,

i wondered if someone could help me, im trying to fit the above BB to my zaskar, and when i tighten it at both sides, the axel doesnt spin, but it does if the cup is not fully tightened on one side.....

its a brand new BB, is it suppost to be tight to the shell both sides?

ive only ever had squre taper BB's, so am unfamiliar with the technicals on this..........

not so tight! Fix the drive side (LH threads!!), and ease up the non drive until all play is **just** gone, and then lock it off. DO NOT, do the cup up tight and tehn lock it. If you can't eliminate play without it rumbling then it sounds like the bearings are shot. . . .
hope this helps, :wink:
