Here's some pictures of the old and new ( All Balls) swing arm bearing parts.

The lower parts in green are the All Balls kit, except the bearing (#3), the upper are the old parts marked in red. The noticeable difference being #7 which is the outer spacer w/ the old one having a washer built into the spacer. This helps keep dirt off the seal (#6). #7 the new part doesn't have the built in washer.

Next difference is #1, a bearing race w/ a collar. An issue here being the collar is smaller on the All Balls. No big deal on that.

I tried to use #4 as an additional spacer to take up some lateral play in the swing arm bearings, but using the spacer made it impossible to fit the swing arm, so I removed the spacer and was able to install the swing arm. I meant to keep #4 on part #1to protect the seal, but in y haste to put it back together I forgot.
