A bearing with integrated mounting features is provided with a groove in at least
one of the races thereof. The groove is of a shallow depth and provides a mounting
location for a mounting ring of slightly different diameter than the race so as
to permit the mounting and maintenance of the mounting ring by compression or interference
upon the bearing, particularly during shipping and assembly. Consequently, the
bearing may be preassembled even when the use of metal mounting rings is contemplated
to accommodate manufacturing tolerances and conditions wherein slippage of the
races is likely to occur.
