Converting from Railko to Bearings?


Recommended Posts

It's a 1992 110, mostly just wondering at this point. If it means new swivel balls it's not going to happen since I just replaced them. I just found the top pin really tight, I haven't had a chance to get a spring scale yet though or more shims (but they seemed to take a lot of them at the time), on my list of things to tackle next week so I was curious.

The railko is stepped so that it only goes in so far.

Hole for the railko bush in the swivel ball -


You press the railko in until it sits firmly against the ball.



The top pin for a railko is also a larger diameter than the taper roller bearing, so I would guess that the swivel housing would also have to be replaced.
