Tapered roller bearing fit in housing

Tapered roller bearing fit in housing

(OP)
Hello Folks,
Im installing a tapered roller bearing "outer bearing race" 2" into a Aluminium bore that reaches 250* F and wounding how much interference to run?
Thank You So Much

Use manufacturer catalog recommendations.

It depends, in large part, whether the shaft or housing rotates, and if the loading is constant direction ( gravity, or belt drive) and if the shaft is vertical, and probably a couple of other things too.

Here, I have brief video that is a summary of how to install the race and bearing in a hub(tapered roller bearings), the tools used, as well as essential points to remember during the installation.

Please Check the following video , May be useful for tapered roller bearings installation.

Yikes! Just watched that youtube video of a guy installing a set of tapered roller wheel bearings in a front suspension hub. A perfect example of how not to install the outer bearing races. The guy literally uses a steel punch and hammer to pound the outer race into the hub bore. Painful to watch.

And yet it can go on for years. Rebuild and repair shops do that kind of thing constantly.
