My one way on my 600n froze up on me the other day so I ordered a new one way and then after that i decided to order the whole new hub and bearing as one unit. when just the one way showed up it was just like all of the other ones that I have seen from Align. The whole hub and bearing showed up today and this one in the hub is built different. It looks normal one one end but on the other end it looks like a bearing, the case on one end is not rounded like the other end. has any one noticed this?

Yup..Its got a radial bearing in one end to hold the shaft true to the OWB. The auto gear is also different. The ID is cut deeper

For the record though, I've had these lock up just like the original design. What fixed the locking up problem was to start using 3 in 1 oil to lube it instead of grease.

OK at least I know what's going on now. I use tranny fluid in mine but they just never last very long for me and I am not a stick banger. When I changed out the one way I did notice that my top main bearing was shot. I wonder if that top bearing had anything to do with the one way going bad.

I have not had good luck with tranny fluid in my OWB's at all either. Some people will tell you they have, but when I tried it, when I took my OWB out, the cause for the lockup was that that plastic inner retainer was shattered and the needles were angled about 45 degrees. I think that the fluid hardened and made the plastic brittle and eventually it broke.

I went back to grease for awhile, and in the cold temps, I would get some pretty significant slipping on spool-up. I simply removed the grease and went with a light oil and have had no problems since. It immediately rectified all of my problems with the OWB's.

I'll have to start using some light oil and see if that helps.

I have Tri-Flow grease but have never used the oil. Is that good when greasing the trust bearings? I'm looking for a way I can grease them without taking the head apart.

All grease does to the rollers is gum them up, and will not let them slide the way that they should.
As far as the new type bearing goes it seems to me that all that they did was to cut down on the surface area that the rollers have.

Tri-Flow is nice, because it really wicks down in there quite well. I just wondered if it would be a little too thin.

If this is the HF1216 OWB that Align normally uses (600N, right?), do yourself a favor and get the Boca unit. I went through 3 of the Align units in two weeks before moving to the Boca unit, and have not replaced it since then.

roto
Thanks for the heads up on the one way. I will have to try one.
I was just looking at this new one way and hub. Will this hub fit my white main gear .The reason I ask is that it says on the packaging for the black main gear???

I'm not sure, but I think Align is still using the HF1216 form factor in all of their 600s, even the new 600 PRO. Maybe someone else here knows? If so, then this OWB would work on any of the Align main gear hubs.

KDE also resells a beefier unit which is the same form factor

I took the new hub and compared it to one of my old ones and it is longer than the original one. I also looked up the new black gear and it is built different than my white gear. The way that the black gear is built it does not look like it will fit on my 600. Can some one chime in here on this issue?

In the case of one-way "bearings", too thin of oil is better than too thick grease. Grease will seize up the rollers, inhibiting their main function.
