I'm in the process of overhauling my bottom bracket, it is a cup and ball bearing type with the bearings in a retainer. When removing the spindle I noticed that the long side was on the left, non-drive side. Is this the case in some instances? From what I understand the long side should be on the drive side. This is the first overhaul for this bracket, is it possible it was installed backwards at the factory?
thanks for any help
