[Healeys] release bearings

What is the "fix" for these thicker release bearings?.... Does one have to
measure them pre-installation and then take them someplace to be ground

As an aside to this, some of the newer Country brand release bearings for
the 9 1/2" clutch have been 1/8 inch or more thicker than the standard.
This causes a constant contact on the carbon when first installed and as a
result a smoky clutch.  Reference: See my email request of six+ months ago.
The bearing wears down quickly but as a result destroys the tight fit on the
carbon doughnut and subsequent bearing failure. No fun!
