While assembling my replacement 9A spindle head (with replaceable sleeve bearings) I have a couple of questions.

Am I to expand the springs so that the felts ride on the spindle?
Or, will the addition of oil to the felts cause this expansion?
and
The originial head stock did not have replaceable sleeve bearings............the replacement does.
Should I file grooves as per the attachment?

Thank you!

This is for a standard regular plain jane 9A lathe ? While I'm no SB expert I've just never heard mention of these sleeve bearings .
