    strange bearings

    i purchased a rebuild kit from Strange Engineering
    for a 8.75 rear around a yr ago and finaly
    got to working on the rear and went to unwrap the bearings and
    noticed they were'nt Timken they were made in Japan to me
    these are inferior bearings, i remember an old man when i packed
    my first bearings, he said always and only use Timken bearings,
    this rear end is going to see around 600 to 700 hrpwr i want
    the best, no japan bearings for me. :evil:

    Hate to disappoint you (i'm an old man also, in fact maybe the oldest man on this forum) but a lot of Timken bearing are now made in Japan. We gave them the technolagy and now they do it better. install them and go racing.

    Just my .02
