Default 3 degree bearing cups ?????

Can someone give any ideas on the install of 3 degree bearing cups ? How do you make sure they line up correctly--and point straight ahead. Thanks g

Centerline down the backbone wrap it over the neck and center it between the legs. Make your marks. Find center on the cups. Install lined up with your marks.

You wont like the way they feel, especially if you have raked trees.

Why are you installing them?

How they feel will depend on a lot of factors. Generally speaking they are equivalent to raking the neck three degrees. Use a rake and trail calculator to check the details but you are going to increase you trail a bit.
