    I removed the new 6304 non sealed bearing and replaced it with a new sealed bearing. The later paralever gearboxes came this way from the factory so I am going to keep it that way. The expert at the bearing supply place said it is normal to see sealed bearing next to the shaft seal. This helps control fluid from leaking around the output seal.:dunno

    That's an interesting thing to say. Maybe he thinks you're dealing with a tranny with a pump in it. these are splash type lube unless I really missed something.

    hey, the blue sure looks purty!

    I changed the sealed (and failed) output shaft bearing on my GS to an open type on my recent rebuild. Had 72,000 miles on the clock.

    Just curious, but who makes the bearing (blue seal) you just installed?
    Is it Japanese?

    Reason I'm asking is because a local car tranny shop where I was sourcing
    my bearings tried to sell me a Chinese bearing (6304) which was sealed and if I remember correctly it had blue seals as in your pic. Found out later it was for an electrical motor installation and I later returned it. A Chinese bearing in my GS gearbox is sub-standard IMO. I ended up buying Fag and Koyo.

    Awesome. Great pics. Did you use one of the Ed Korn videos or did you just do this from the book?
