    Do you mean that the rims are stuck onto the axle .
    If so I have used a bottle jack and a sturdy bit or timber and jacked it from the wheel on the opposite side.

    To be fair I never thought of that. I was thinking I needed to get our portapower from my dads to try it but maybe the bottle jack idea would work too!! :thumbup:

    a block of timber and the sledge should do it.

    I'd be fair handy with the sledge and it didn't budge it one inch. Probly because I was lying on my back you couldn't get a good swing at it.

    it is well on isnt it.
    id stand on the outside , put the timber up against the rim on the bottom and hit it inwards.
    it ill do the same trick normally.

    I'll try that aswell, maybe put the jack in behind it and then slap the other side with the sledge. It's well stuck alright!!

    well wen the rubber bearing is new its a job to bate it in its that tight of a fit. shouldnt really be any play. its not a dear item so id be inclined to stick in a new one if ya have play. should improve it no end

    Those tyres fairly set her off there!

    What model is that? 8130?

    The mechanic was supposed to have fitted a new rubber bearing 2 years ago if I remember right and she wouldn't have done anymore than 2 or 3 hours mixing since tbh.

    I doubt he's pulled a fast one! It shouldn't have worn out that fast should it?

    nah it should last a couple of hundred hours on average. it would wear out prematurely if it was left spinning dry ie wen the tank is empty. maybe wrong bearing was used?

    That's quite possible too that the wrong bearing was fitted, she wouldn't have been run dry anyway.

    It's definitely not tight the way it sits at the minute and I would say that is adding to the reason for the slurry coming too far up and out at the gearbox.

    if it was working along time worn before the marine bearing was changed then the shaft could be worn and will have to be changed or built up or there will alway's be play

    I don't think the shaft is worn but haven't got her fully opened up yet to check, will know better when I get a better look.

    If he has fitted the wrong type how would I get the correct one? Or should all the redrock ones be the same?

    ring redrock and tell them what she is and they will either give you the correct part number or post one out to you and stick it in yourself.
