Why is smooth better? The T spindle is threaded for the reason to allow adjustment of the outer bearing, most important. The plain A bearing will wiggle on the threaded T spindle, IMO not the best thing.


The A uses a smooth spindle section to hold the A bearing.



The T is a different design requirement. Note the A bearing without threads on the left as removed from a T spindle. The end is all rough and rubbed away from contact, as the bearing couldn't be locked in place without threads. Plus the threads of that T spindle were worn down too.

The flats on the T bearing on the right are for the hub cap wrench to tighten up the bearing is setting the pre-load, can't do that with smooth A bearing!

Dan, there is a difference between treaded, as Bob's post is titled,and threaded!

Just my grade school teacher experience coming through. I still think tread on a bearing is undesirable.

You are correct, for wheel bearings a treaded one isn't suitable.

But a treaded or tracked muffler bearing is good for the requirements.

Dan, you gave been taken in by a snake oil sales man. The model T muffler to tailpipe joint is meant to allow in and out movement as the pipe expands with heat. Instead of roller bearings allowing the pipe to rotate, muffler bearings require circular bearing rings to allow the pipe to go in and out as required.
