Re: Once more my FD bearing failed
I am not one of the FD gurus on this site but if it failed in 1100km the first time, it had to be way over shimmed. I think you got closer to what it needs the second time but still not quite right. It is a difficult measurement to take and get right as I have done 3 myself with 2 different measuring methods. So far, so good but I haven't checked it this season yet but I am hopeful for nothing but fuzz on the magnet again. I would recommend you do it again and repeat that measurement several times. Do you remember if your shim pack put you on the high side, middle or low side of your calculation? Are you using the required C3 spec 19 ball bearing and not the less expensive C1 spec which is not accurate enough to be used in that application? I couldn't tell if the taper bearing had any pits from the ball cage bits or not but it looked like it made its way in that bearing.
