Aircraft bearings are a very useful type of fastener, allowing for constraint of movement to specific motions, all while reducing friction between the moving parts. This requires that bearings be accurately installed, lest the bearing’s life expectancy be cut short along with other problems. If a bearing is too loose, movement between components is less restricted, leading to problems such as wear, fretting, scoring, fracturing, and more. When a bearing is too tight on the other hand, increased force for mounting may be required, also leading to possible bearing fractures. According to estimates, about 16% of premature bearing failures are caused by poor installation of bearings. So what are some of the methods to correctly install a bearing, and what are things to avoid?
