    the machine shop here puts them in a line at the bottom, so does the factory. a few of my circle track buddies say they have to be staggered. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    AFAIK it doesn't really matter, there is a grove all the way around where the bearing sits for the oil to go /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    all mine have been in a line at the bottom and i don't have a problem.
