My bearings for holding my differential in my buggy arrived.. I ordered the bearings with a bore of 1.625 and they are exactly 1.625... I thought my differential bearing seats were also 1.625 but they are in fact 1.628 so I need to either take off .003 on my differential, or bore out the 1.625 bearings to 1.628..
Normally I would just use an edge finder and bore them out on my Bridgeport, but since I only need to take .003 off, I was wondering f there is an easier way? Could I just heat up the bearings with low heat and expect them to expand from 1.625 to > 1.628?
Here is a picture of them:
