Hi, All;

I attempted to install the lower bearing,support, block, etc., for my Cruzer. My bearing block is about 2.5mm too wide to fit between the sides of the center firewall stiffener. The specs for the block show it's supposed to be 94mm wide, mine is 96.52mm (3.80" converted to mm).

Did you sand-down the block to make it fit? Did you try to do both sides so that the strut remained centered in the bearing? New block?  I have a note in to Roger, but no answer yet. Was just curious if others had this issue and how it was resolved, just in case I can do something on my own.
