  • Triangle Part #1508P Sintered Iron Bearing - 1/2" Bore 
  • Two - 1/4 - 2- bolts 
  • Small or adjustable wrench 
  • A plug gauge or something similar that is smaller than the bearing's bore 
  • 1/2" shaft 
  • gloves

Step 1:

Put on your gloves and grab the two bolt flange mount, bearing and plug gauge. 

Step 2: 

Place the Bearing sideways into the mount so it isn't completely flat. 

Step 3: 

Put the plug gauge (or other tool you are using) into the bore of the bearing 

Step 4: 

Place your right hand on the bottom of the mount and put your left hand on the top of the mount.

Step 5:

While keeping your hands in this position, push opposite sides until the bearing is fully in the mount and aligned. 

Step 6:

When the two bolt flange is fully assembled into the mount, place it on the mounting area of your product. Make sure your mounting holes are 1.75" apart. 

Step 7:

Fasten your two bolts into each mounting hole and tighten them with your wrench. Tighten with your wrench until the flange is completely secured onto your product. 

Step 8: 

Place a 1/2" shaft into the bore of the bearing. Ensure the shaft can move axially.
