I decided to pull the other 2 spindles apart since I rebuilt the broken one. I figured out the other 2 spindles were put together wrong so the bottom bearing were not running in the races. There were no spacers under the bottom bearing on the old style spindle shaft. Good thing I pulled them apart. Something seemed wrong when you turn them by hand. They were not near as smooth as my rebuilt one.
The newer spindle shafts have the spacer built on the bottom like the one I just bought.
