Thanks guys! "Cup"...sheesh! Of course! My problem was that I am used to calling them bearings and races rather than cups and cones, from my aircraft restorations.

That was actually my worry about the Vaseline..whether it would be compatible with the HyTran.
And I will definitely be careful about leaving the orings on until ready to replace them. I already have the new ones seperated into a little plastic parts container, waiting to be matched up.
Oh, a quick question...when I asked here about this, a suggestion of "Assembly Grease" (not sure if that is the right name) that is used when reassembling engines. Would this be good?
OK, off to breakfast and another fun day at Stonethrow!!
