You said the ball on the feathering shaft was off-center. I also had a pretty violent shaking in the head of my predator (with stock g231). Resulted in a bent main shaft.
Found that the ball was not in the center. On rebuild I aplied a tiny drop off ZAP to keep the ball in the center of the feathering shaft. Has been running smooth since.
Do not know if it is coincidence or if this really was what was causing the vibration.

I think this was a quality control issue from new,the ball would not shift for me so i bought a shiny new shaft(non blacked).This one is spot on,i checked it with digital calipers.Spool-up is smooth now.I think the position of that ball is crucial and has to be dead-on because the mass of the head pivots on that point.I think the idea of that centre ball is very clever because it gives you a non attached pivot point.
