some more clarification regarding bearing bores

The bearing bore is symmetrical, not tapered. This practise is very common on automotive and truck applications.
cisco ,,i'm with ya,,i've seen that technique,,,good news is that you claim the rest of the bore is NOT tapered

the bottom line is still this:

After doing the proper heat n freeze technique,,that bearing should drop in all the way and be held with circa .001'' of crush....AND apparantly that is not the experience of many owners
