What I was thinking. I'll just make sure it doesn't get worse and if I ever need to do any rear repairs replace it then.I've ran mine like that for a very long while (500+) hours and didnt really have a problem. It's more of an annoyance really. I would replace it though if you have the means. It's a cheap part.
Part # 41363-HP6-A00.Costs about $12.old thread...but does anyone have the part # for this? Mine is doing the same thing, and I'm doing a bunch of maintenance this month but Im not sure which exct part you're talking about...
Is it the entire Carrier bearing?? Hope not, cheapest I could find was like $50
Bumping this old thread. I think my collar is shot now. I've read this awhile back and wonder'd how it wears out? But apparently it does. I haven't took mine apart yet but almost looks like it wore so much the one plate may even be missing? I will know more tomorrow, but looks like the plates are special order, err...any one out there have any problems with the rear bearing carriage the bushing in the front wearing out im having that just wondering if thats a common problem
Interesting fix! Not sure how long ago you did this, but I can't see it lasting very long. I mean if there's enough movement/friction to wear the collar out, one would think tape would not last long. But maybe it absorbs the shock, and reduces the friction from being a "snug fit" idk?Instead of wasting money on the proper fix I used some electrical tape to make it a snug fit... Works perfectly fine for me.
I replaced mine, and replaced the metal thingys that go either side.. Still slaps around so that was a waste of time !
thats easier said than done !
I wonder if the blot when slapping about has a hammering efect on the aluminium surround beating it wider ?
