    Gordon, I suggest you start your morning with a large portion of "Get Over Yourself". Clouds will be fluffier, birds will chirp more sweetly, and you'll feel better.

    If you can find a 4-WD lawn tractor with auger, that might be the ticket. Maybe 2-WD would work OK, but you might be unloading the rear wheels with the weight of attachments.

    Or just drive...

    Good post, g-coder. I remember during the Doosan - D.D. saga pointing out the thread to a couple of the Doosan guys when they posted, and never saw any action on their part. It's one of the reasons...

    First dumb question - have you tried a magnet on the material? It could be carbon steel, or it could be something else. The oxide layer that SS makes gives it more resistance to silver...

    I call BS. All that's needed is a Mil Spec 3443/B Pig, Greased. I see nothing else in the manual about Kevlar.

    So does the spindle still have the ceramic bearings in it? And do you know if C&M actually used a complete "hybrid" set, or did they DIY with just a ball swap?

    Does sound like the machine's been...

    Alimentary, my dear Watscan.

    Sorry, in #17 I was trying to suggest after new bearing and any other maintenance required was done, then regrind the taper. I wouldn't have thought to do it on old bearing.

    And TBH, I'm not...

    Clarification requested - is this where ceramic balls were subbed out, or am I conflating previous posts? And if this is where convention bearing sets were modded, did they do it right?

    Given...

    Now I'm confused. If you think it's the spindle taper profile that's causing the marks, why wouldn't a (proper) regrind of the taper on good, new bearing not give a better surface to engage the...

    Well, when the rest of the spindle is healthy you'll want to have the taper reground. Then there's the "do I worry about the old holders in the new taper" question.
  17. If you kept the races but changed over balls, or...

    If you kept the races but changed over balls, or even installed new steel races and ceramic balls of your own choosing, but kept the original spacer setup, then there's a good chance you're off...

    Well, I think technically it is fretting, just not localized the way you'd get with a bellmouth or swollen small end.

    I have read (but perhaps only once) that in hybrid bearings (steel races, ceramic balls) that the curvature of the race "track" is slightly different than that of conventional steel bearings to...

    And if you DIY, please run a thread on it if it's not too much effort. Would be interested in your approach, and you could get feedback on technique.

    Could be, but if he sees a similar pattern in all his holders (of roughly the same time in use) I'd think it's the spindle taper.

    If it is the spindle, perhaps the current grind was done with an...
