    Tom,looks right. Right side as sitting on bike. The space you see on the axle is spot on. for right side.

    Thanks for taking the photos I wasn’t sure if I did it right I thought I did. The bearing rubber seal I thought I may have pushed it into far I think it’s in 4 mm from the edge of the rim . :0

    When ever I can I replace old bearings with sealed ones. I compared yours to mine and it all looks fine . Some going to flip out but the front bearing in my 1996 is original .
    Range time in a bit just got back from a nice cool ride.

    Well I do know that mine are Timken bearings which are used I think until 2000 , when they went to a 1 inch axle and if taken care of can last a very very long time. There are sealed with the outer rubber seal which is separate from the bearing it self .. I was just worried that I pushed my Seal in too far ..
