Endplay vibration in automobile power-steering pump applications has been eliminated by the use of a bevelled retaining ring from Rotor Clip. Machining a simple groove into the application allows the complementary angle of the bevelled ring to assume the function of the more costly and cumbersome threaded nut that was previously used to retain the bearing. Once installed, this cost-effective retaining ring eliminates the need for additional labour to torque the part or machine threads on the housing.
