Default Logo Xxtreme - Thrust Bearings

Hi, I know im gona look really stupid but who cares...
I have always put my Thrust Bearings in with the exposed balls facing in (Towards the Shaft)
it seems like in the Logo Xxtreme Manual that the exposed balls r facing out... Have i been doing it wrong for so long...?

Well your first mistake was not posting this in the Mikado Xxtreme forum!

It doesn't really matter - personally I'd mount the open cage pointing inwards to minimise the tendency for the grease to get thrown out.

Was a long discussion about this before,

I go for the XX manual, I always had issues that cages fall apart after use when having the balls inwards toward the head, so I will try doing like in the manual for the XX on all my machines from now.

The "hold the grease" came from an old Finless video, perhaps he was wrong back then, and the rule "stuck", we'll see next time I service my Logos.

There is a discussion here http://www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?t=383902 regarding this, general consensus was to mount them the way Mikado shows, as there was some evidence that mounting them the other way to hold in the grease had a greater tendency to allow the balls to come out of the cage.

Been discussed many times before with the Xxtreme.

I built mine with the cups on the oustside holding the grease in.

Many including Dave Dahl say build them as per manual with the balls facing out.

Mine is working excellent with no early signs of wear yet.
