When I looked at Simon's A/C with Al, I was able to reach in and feel the
bearing flange with a finger.  However I couldn't see the flange.  I was
feeling for any sign of the flange popping out from under the counter sunk
screw heads.  While turning the bearing, I could not feel any nicks around the
edge of flange.  The counter sunk head screws used in Simons and others should
at lease be large head screws.  My STG-RG, uses the large head screws as used
in attaching the elevators to the canard, along with the bearing installed
from the front.
