  MOUNTING AND FITTING  

RECOMMENDED FITS

The following table shows recommended shaft and housing sizes and tolerances for different applications. It is assumed that bearings used are ABEC 5 tolerance (+0 -.0002 inch) for bore and O.D. If a different grade of bearing is used, this will affect recommended dimensions of mating components.

L = Loose fit
T = Tight fit
d = Bearing bore from table
D = Bearing O.D. from table
*Notes for press fits:
1. Interference factor may affect final radial play
2. Allow for relative thermal expansion
3. MC5 radial play bearing (.0005 to .0008 in) recommended for tight press
4. Tight press not recommended for bearing with ring thickness <.030 in.
