Follow-up to wheels/races question...

What is purpose of the inner/outer races of wheel hubs/bearings? Stability? If wheel hub fits snugly on inner/outer bearings and there is no play, what is function of races?

Post Re: Clutch pedal adjustment for "play"

Thanks! I'll try without a jack. If I need to use one I'll figure out where to position it to relieve the tension.
