So I was changing my linkage bearing (on the triangular linkage) pressing old bearing out and I ended up damaging the lip where the washer and seal seat. The socket gouged the surface pretty good. I tried to clean up and then I pressed the new bearing in. Everything went smoothly, I got the new bearing in but no I cannot get the spacer in . The little needle bearings seem to be catching on the spacer. Any suggestions? Are both of these the same size, as far as I can tell both of them on the linkage triangle piece are the same. Is it possible I did enough damage to cause the spacer not to go in due to issue with the bearings?
