3 1/2 in. Large Snap Ring
The 3 1/2″ Large Snap Ring is the larger retainer that holds the Bronze Composite Back Plate Bearing Kit (#75619) into place. Using the ring is the correct installation method for the backplate bearing. We recommend using snap ring pliers to remove and install new ring retainers.
A retaining ring is a fastener that holds components or assemblies onto a shaft or in a housing/bore when installed typically in a groove. Once installed, the exposed portion acts as a shoulder that retains the specific component or assembly.
