I hear what your saying. But when I pull bearings out of an s-trim that are clearly marked with standard bearing part numbers it is hard for me to believe that there is something special about it.
I suppose that it is possible that there are some special clearances used in the bearings, but I really doubt that it could make that much of a difference. It might cause the owner to rebuild it a bit sooner than one that was repaired by vortech. But, if the person is rebuilding it themselves anyway what's the big deal if they have to do it a bit sooner than if Vortech did it.
I still stand by my statement that your are trying to freak people out to maintain your rebuild business. And you never responded to my statement about offering some constructive criticism on the rebuild instructions.
