Got my new OEM spindle assembly UPS from Wright for $150. Open the box and the tag tells me it is not for my 36"... but 48" and up. OK.... box it up and sent it back, just down time for a few more days. But I did not order another OEM... why? you ask. I could pull the center shaft up and down about an eight of an inch? With pressed on bearings to center shaft... pressed into housing... sealed ball bearings... How can I pull this shaft up and down? No I did not pull the snap rings out and take it apart... as curious as I may have been... just wanted it gone. Got one from Russo much cheaper it seems fine. Really now.. that had to have been a bad spindle, correct. Brought it over to a retired heavy equipment mechanic friend and he thought so too, or did I miss something here. Do not think I would ever buy another OEM spindle. Thanks for any replies.
