    Angry Another Ceramic Bearing Failer

    This time it was the fan side I know I put that bearing in right .It had 15-20 hrs on it.The gear side is still there and I pushed it in just like the book with the support on the inter race.This is not an install failer at all.I'm replacing every ceramic bearing back with stock bearings.

    Green Hulk I tried the heat when I put yellow jackets SC back together and it only helped a little but still had to be pressed in.I will be replacing the $40 set of stock bearings every 50-75 hrs.I'm not loosing anymore SC.

    I will say that the heat did help some and I will keep doing it that why.I'm suprised that it was the fan side though.When I told him to ship it back to me after it locked up I was expecting the gear side again.At least we didn't hurt the motor this time.

    Again!!! nothing against you Jer or your product , but this is why i went back to stock bearings, i just didnt want to deal with the what if's i guess. But i guess you on the other hand you could say the "what if's are there with the stock bearings as well" i dont know im just stickin with stock bearings i feel safer for some stupid reason , but watch now they are going to blow since i ginxed myself, (knocks on wood!!!!)
