    One thing to remember when putting the bearing caps back on, the adjusting collar prong bolts will snap very easily. I don't know what the torque spec is, but I just put some threadlocker on there and snug them with a 3/8 ratchet. Of course this was after snappinig one of the heads off the first time :doah:
