All fixed. The CW&P actually looked fine but since I have several basically new ones I just pulled the bridge out of one of those and used it. I did take the precaution of taking the nut and lockwasher off and loctiting the bejasus out of it.I agree that not using solid spacer is dumb but it is CHEAP and everybody always loves cheap. I'm considering cannibalising another one and solid spacing it. No reason you can't.I've seen two cases of this in ten years. I saw at least as many other bevelbox failures over the years with other designs. I knew that people would shriek. Perhaps I should just not bother?Pete
Definitely should have posted, shriek or not, this stuff is good info for long term owners
That is a very pretty thing Martin. Have you run one of the earlier 'Pumpkin' boxes with a later, higher powered, motor than the original V7? I seem to remember that there were issues with them cracking in higher load situations. Not claiming it to be fact but Charlie might know.
And I'm now a slow old git, will watch for leaks of course, has viton seals O rings at pinion etc, only oil level remains to be decided, will try 250cc first (factory quoted 300 then 230)
Ahh, so a shim should be doable. Now you would assume the factory has some specified torque/preload applied to those bearings,like tapered rollers used in some car wheels. I guess you'd want to add that into the equation when deciding on a shim.

there is no specified toque for the nut because the unit is 'Non Serviceable' remember! Why would they give a torque figure for something that supposedly has 'Magic' properties? ::)Pete
By the view of the stacking of the outer races, it doesn't appear there's any room between bearings to accept a spacer. It might be possible to squeeze a shim between the inner races, though??
Why not use a crush sleeve like the automotive industry? Tighten until the proper preload is acheived, works splendid. It does take a bit to get the sleeve started to crush then gets easy. not rocket science by no means. ;-T DonG
