- Hi Deepdive,
When i did the suspension links on mine most of the needle rollers were damaged or rusted and 2 of the inner bearing tubes were badly worn.
The cost of all those parts plus the side seals was more than the cost of two new and assembled con-rods.
Wool gathering as I contemplate winter maintenance
New conrods complete approx. $540 US
OE bearings are $6 each ( $42 for 7 pcs)
OE oil seals are $3 each ( $24 for 8 pcs )
The 3 bearing tubes are $115
So it appears components are $180
I can order sealed bearings for $20 each or "open" for $10 from McMaster Carr
When the frost arrives, I will dissect and see what I need.
Once I get eyes on this mechanism I will determine if adding grease zerks is doable and or desirable
As always your thoughts are welcome
