I see your point. Yes, for the most part the bearing locking washer was used to eliminate any needed support. But in hindsight only a small lip on top would be needed to hold the bearing in place if inserted from the bottom. I'll give it a try and re-post if it works when I get some time. Thanks for the feedback!
