IMO rear bearings are spinning because the Moss gasket is too thick for the bearing to be clamped properly.

I measured a new gasket at .014"; used one .010"

The bearing spacer can only clamp the bearing properly if the gasket is <=.004" - like a piece of copier paper.

Tom of Tom's Toys told me he had replaced 80 sets of rear spun bearings. I think the gaskets are causing these bearing failures.
