Me and a friend have been blowing up these bearings on our centax clutch of the mtx2 pro spec cars.

Can anyone advise how to fit it in correctly? The manual does not really help by saying... "the big bore should meet c6023" ... something like that. Both sides of the bearing looks the same size?!?! How to know which way to go in first to the flywheel nut?

Pls advise .... thks.

Use a vernier caliper. The smaller is 6mm, on the outside, the bigger is I think 6.2mm. Grease the trust bearings after every run.

the key is to allow a bit of clutch bell endplay. and shd spin freely. It shd last at least 6-9 months. good luck
