i don't know if you can pull the shaft that way
(but if you can, id like to know)
the 'bearings' are more 'races'
there pretty obvious , the only 2 places the shaft rests/spins.
one right at where you remove shaft (passenger side on block)
and the p.i.t.a. one... at the other end:o)
you can see /feel if its worn.
i used a lil flashlight to see.
check ALL angles ...i thought mine were ok till i looked topside
the wear was obvious and unmistakable.
(pieces missing)
hope that helps...
