Oil Retention Cap

      Disclosed is shim stock disk for retaining bearing oil in a
Direct Access Storage Device (DASD).

      As shown in Fig. 1, a shim stock disk has first and second
sides.  The first side contacts an outer bearing race attached to a
rotating hub.  The second side is adhered to the rotating hub using a
Pressure Sensitive Adhesive (PSA) tape ring.

      As shown in Fig. 2, a shim stock disk may be positioned between
a ball bearing and a non-contact labyrinth seal.
