So just putting my dnepr final drive back together and have a question regarding the number of rollers in the pinion needle bearing and the crown wheel bearing. For the latter i purchased a full set of rollers and these completely fill the raceway without much space at all left over however the pinion needle bearing has enough space for perhaps one more roller.

I was always taught that crowded bearings should have some space so which one is correct?

I don't remember how may there are, but there were no spaces. I held them in place with EP3 grease while I assembled it.

Crown one has 45 if I remember correctly... (and if it's a regular non-sidecar drive model)

Don't know about the pinion one but mine was full with no space left when I fixed my final drive a few weeks ago..
