I've acquired a rear end which I've pulled apart to check out. I noticed 2 of the bearings are somewhat loose. I can twist them back and forth several degrees, however not enough for the rollers to come out. My ? is, are they ok to use? Will they run true or will they bind up? Can the connecting pins be peened to tighten them up?

They can be tightened up,but it would be best to look for better ones. Also check wear on the rollers.

Thanks, Jack for the info. The rollers seem good.
Just didn't know if they would cause a problem.
