On all of the tapered roller wheel bearings that I have seen over the past 40 years there is a nut to set the load, not screws and shims, and the setting is to a specific amount of rolling torque. So I don't know where the system in the illustration would be used. What kind of equipment is the illustrated assembly actually used on?

It would be nice if the article showed an image of the alternative spiral snap ring + wave spring solution to make it easier to see the difference.
