Re: Sealed BB

It could be misaligned due to the eccentric shell faces not being square. You may need to have it refaced. Try inserting the left cup to full depth first so that when you fit the main body you know it's going in square and not cross threaded. Don't forget to back off the left cup as you proceed. :wi...
