    Default Berkley (bowl)

    Ok guys, I need some opinions here... I think I know the answer (replace the bushings) but is there more damage that I dont see?







    Thanks in advance.

    Replace the bushings and DuaneHTP at http://www.hi-techperformance.com/ has a shaft repair kit. To me, everything else seems ok.

    The shaft looks to be well worn and liley out of tolerences in both the hard chrome and seal areas , you'll be ok with a new used or reconditioned one , the bushings are part of all base jet kits and easy to replace , repairing the shaft with a repair sleeve takes a lathe as you might imagine let me know if we can help Tom

    I just mic'd the shaft (not calipers) and the difference between the un-worn shaft and the worn parts is .002 in overall diameter (not as bad as it looks or feels) but none the less its worn. As far as a lathe, no problem there... my issue is time/deadline and I really dont have time to pull it out and chuck it up as I have yet to paint, re-carpet, rebuild the carb and put in all new gauges (which Ill be calling you about Tom). So long story short, I am hoping that the shaft will be ok for one more trip to Mead in Sept.

    Ok, why did you pull it in the first place? Was it making noise?

    I was pulling it because I am taking it to be powder coated again. Since this is my first experience pulling a Jet apart, I wasn't sure if this was damage or just normal wear and tear.

    I would have waited until the last outting and then took it apart.
