countershaft failure.
Today had a countershaft failure. It had worn down to about 1/8" diameter then the drive gear parted company. Fortunately I was only 3 feet from landing. I note one should check the bearing according to earlier posts. Don't you have to split the frame to do that? Second question- I guess those spacers should be tight against the 5x13 bearing to "preload" the bearing-- Is this correct? What grade of locktite do you use to insure that the bearing will not spin on the shaft?

I'm certainly no expert but, if you haven't read it already, I think this thread will answer most of your questions about how to handle the wear on the counter shaft.

I haven't put it to the test yet but, based on the research I did on Loctite products, I decided to use the 609 grade.
