Looking for EHCS replacement shaft
Help! I just ruined the shaft on my EHCS unit trying to remove severe pitting that trashed the seal. Looking for help locating a replacement shaft (old or new).
The whole story...
After reading several great posts and watching videos, I purchased the O rings and seals, a new motor, and decided to attempt the rebuild.
Once I got the unit off the bike and cleaned up, I noticed severe pitting in several areas on the shaft. Realizing that the shaft needs to be smooth or I risk ripping up the new seal and wiper, I got to sanding the worst areas. Now, the shaft is nice and smooth, but the pitting was so deep that now the shaft diameter is smaller in spots. Small enough in fact that when I test fit the new seal, I can see daylight between the shaft and the seal.
Compressing the unit proved the point as when that area of the shaft moved through the existing seal, fluid came pouring out.
So, I'm now in the market for a replacement shaft. Has anyone else run into this dilemma? I've seen posts where new end caps have been machined, has anyone had replacement shafts machined?
Or does anyone have an EHCS unit (or parts) they'd be willing to part with?
