inter shaft bearing question
pulled inter shaft to clean and check and found a small ammount of rock/play when holding the bearing housing and moving the coupler end,
refered to service manual but cant find my answer...
is a small ammount of play normal due to ball bearings or should it be tight as a drum??
thanks in advance..paul..

You could while you are there.
I would think as long as water didnt get in there you are probably ok tho.

I just had to replace my intermediate shaft because the splins blew out. Check inside the female portion of the shaft and see if there is any corrosion/rust there. Easier to replace now while its in pieces.

You will feel if the bearing is rough when you turn it by hand.
Play is good!
Water ingress is not.
Just done this to the Blaster.
It's not to bad a job to change bearing and seals. You don't need a press. Did the last one with a hole cut out of my bench, a lump of wood, and a mallet!!
Think the experts do it any differently?-i got the tip about hole in bench/big hammer, from N&C!!

Paul, if it turn smooth without any rough spots, I would just grease it and put it back in. If you feel any reough spots, just rebuild it. All of the specs are in the service manual. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE if you rebuild it, use a press.
