which side of spindle goes on drive side?
so i was taking apart my bb trying to figure out why my cranks felt rough and tight when i spun them fowards, but smooth as butter when i spun them backwards (turns out one of the ball bearing cages was broken into about 4 pieces).
So anyway i removed the spindle, not noticing which side went on the drive side. When i look at the spinde, the length from the inside race of the bearings to the tip of the spindle where the cranks attach is about 1" 3/8 and the other is 1" 1/8.
I dont want to screw up my chain line so which side goes on the drive side, the shorter or longer? I am gonna go into my tool box and look for a new bearing, so give me an answer by the time i get back, cause im going riding tonight, oh yeah.
