has anyone ever seen the bush bearing collapse? :o

 

was just stripping my mp5K to sort the airseal/piston etc, when i noticed that the new bearing bush that i fitted a few weeks ago has collapsed! :o:o and it was on the idle gear (the mid gear) ... which by all accounts has little/no load :wacko:

 

just wondering how common a even this is?

Yeah from what I have read anything below 8mm is increasingly likely to fail with bearings :(

 

Even the bushings I bought are rotating in the casting now, so it looks like I am gunna have to swap that at some point but as luck would have it land warrior have a ultimate v3 box with 8mm bearings :) but its gunna be a month or 2 before I get it. If/when I do it's gunna be another rebuild though with a major ROF :)
