DGP Posted July 6, 2010 Author Report Share Posted July 6, 2010 Hazy...this machine has never been hardlanded...very rarely has anything on the hook and there is nothing broken or cracked...we also check the bearings with a thermal gauge from time to time as we do with all the hangar bearings to see the running temps...the main problem is the grease getting thrown out of the bearing...gets all over the squirrel cage...dirt then collects...balance goes for the s!*ts and vibs start and this is leading to bearing wear...as mentioned I have replaced the shaft twice due to corrosion...this is our 3 shaft and 4th set of bearings...if you ever seen the balance procedure you would give your head a shake...1 thin washer and the balance is screwed...what do you think grease and dirt will do in short order...poor set up imho Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
