Re: S3 layshaft slop

Yep very much so, it can be a combination of end plate bearing cup, end plate bearing, the layshaft and the hub bearing. 0.02mm mm wear on the layshaft or the the bearing cup can result in huge differences.

Re: S3 layshaft slop

This other Spanish endplate bush is 24.3 and a good fit with bearing and layshaft so it looks like anything under 24 is worn and could lead to play on the wheel Sent from my SM-A320FL using Tapatalk Sorry, If I'm being thick, but I presume you're measuring the ID of the bearing track?

Re: S3 layshaft slop

As Gary has suggexyed/suspected, the new bush/bearing cage is a big bigger compared to an original unit. Would anyone have an MB layshaft and a good set of digital verniers or a micrometer and can measure the end of the layshaft for me so I can compare to mine before I lay out £150 for a new one.

S3 layshaft slop

Newly rebuilt engine, zero miles. new MB hub bearing and new SKF end plate bearing. Gearbox shimming close to the minimum gap.. Can't remember exact figure. When on the centre stand I can move the rear wheel slightly and hear a knock which I guess is shaft in the end plate. Hub correctly torqued.. G...
