Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2018: Todays Ruckstell question Re; thrust bearing/housing fit

At some time in the past the thrust bearing spun in the housing. I have not checked at this point the gap between the housing and bearing. I need suggestions on how to fix. I have done the shim to fix on one housing but is not an easy job to keep shim in place and assemble the rear end. I am thinking sleeve or bearing lock on final assembly but am open to suggestions.
Thanks
PS because of cost, a different housing is not a real option at this point.

I've used a stiff shim that does't collapse. On one occasion, I glued the shim to the housing. I held it in place while drying with a free ball bearing that I removed later.

What kind of glue did you use? Maybe something like sleeve lock?

You can get a thicker thrust bearing and not use shimms behind the steel washer.

Locktite Bearing Retainer. I've used it on several loose bearings on farm machinery.
