Default IRS tc3 input shafts

i just got the irs input shafts for my tc3 and when i was assembling the front input shaft i could not slide the bearings on because of groves in the shaft. are they supposed to be there. here is a pic. thanks for any help.

spaz456-yes the machining marks are there are on purpose-according to Dave. They help in the fit of the parts. Mine was tight to assemble as well. But -oh so light!!!

you will most likely have to sand down the parts to get the proper fit. I used a cordless drill and some emery to do the job and it seemed to work very well. The alum cuts very easy so be carefull and use a micrometer so you dont go to far.

yes after i posted i decided to sand lightly with some fine grit sand paper by hand and now i got the bearings to fits perfectly. now that i think about it that is a good feature to have so you can make a perfect customized fit. thanks guys

btw very light compared to those stock steel ones! lol
