Quote:Quote:Roller Thrust Bearings. ?? Mine is strictly teflon thrust washers and bearing collars.Ron, where was the thrust washer? I would think on the RA shaft between the RA housing and DEC housing. Any specs on that bearing? Here's a picture of mine. I also raised the DEC housing on the counter weight shaft and the bearing between that and the saddle is also Teflon. Both of the Teflon washers are full diameter flush to the edge of the housings so they look good and help keep contamination from catching.Does anybody else have any experience with finding a thrust bearing on the Edmund 8"?
