I've got the part number for the bearing.

It's an AC Delco#8623921

Based on the TH400s I've been in(it's been a while), I think it is on the planetary.

Thanks C/Style, looks like a much nicer bearing than the one I used.

Greg, yes I guess you could do it that way also. I was trying to keep things pretty much in their stock locations at the time...was trying to avoid falling into any "traps".

The drum is holding up well. I've done another one for a buddy who wanted to try it too. So far so good. I think it's a winner.

I think I had about .001" interference. I used loctite but I don't think it's needed since the ring can't go anywhere in the stackup.

I'm going to give one a try myself. Do you think just mild steel would be ok ? Since you used tool steel or should i look to a better material..Thanks for your help.

Mild steel should work fine. I only used tool steel because I have access to lots of it.
