Hi, this is my first post...I apologize if I've posted in the wrong location...

Could you look at this image and answer a question, if you know? It concerns the rings with the ball bearings.
On each ring, the ball bearings are only visible on one side.
When I re-assemble, should the side of the ring with the balls visible face inward toward each other, or outward away from each other?

The picture you show there has a "close up" picture of a single bearing, but in reality, there are 2 bearings on each side of that tremolo. 4 Bearings total.

There isn't any standard reference for which way they should be installed, but I would suggest putting the 2 bearings in so the open parts are facing each other.

Hope this helps!
