Re: Somewhat disappointed
So it's all together. I used hardened aircraft grade allen head bolts and hardened aircraft lock nuts along with Loctite blue thread locker. I got to thinking heck the fan is held on by simple bolts no lockers and it stays there. So with the quality of bolts/nuts plus the addition of Loctite Blue I seriously doubt I will ever have an issue plus if I ever have another bearing failure I can still get it apart.
Attached is the finished project. Cost? $10.00 for one bearing and a little time spent at the drill press plus some time pressing old bearing out and new one in. Lots easier to swallow than $250!
