    Tripple Bearing mod by Skat (vertical movement?)

    I flipped my pump over to remove the pump cone, and i hear a clunk ... i flip it back over again and the same... there's no side to side movement (that i'm aware of, the wear ring/prop tolerance is TIGHT so i wouldn't know if there's side to side play... but if i shake the pump in an up and down motion there's internal movement... very little! but most certainly movement since i can hear it click or clunking as i shake it.

    Normal?

    what to do?

    you would think it wouldn't have any movement since a bearing should be secure in order to give any support or alignment. Since it's broken i'll give you $50 for it, LOL j/k.

    thats the center bearing moving back and forth between the two outer bearings. As long as you don't have any play in the shaft you are good to go.

    I would try to measure how much, and let glen at skat know . I had the same issue with mine, and the bearings were moving,(also some side to side) which over time can wear out your pump housing. I sent it back, and he made the bearings press into the housing. I've had no movement at all since .
