 I would think the top one is sufficient. Mike

Subject: [TowerTalk] Thrust Bearing adjustment

I'm about to raise a 72' US Tower equipped with a pair of TB2US thrust bearings 
spaced about 3'.  I'll be using a TailTwister2 Rotator.  Is there a procedure 
for centering these components to preclude binding?

I doubt there is a way to make the two bearings share the vertical load, so 
which one should I choose.  I'm thinking that the top bearing should take the 
load and use the lower bearing to stabilize the mast laterally.
