They were made with a slight NEGATIVE clearance, but there is a cure even
for the positive clearance parts which were supplied as replacements by
Logan until the problem became known.
There nearly always is some way around, but it does not do to invoke the
necessity for such workarounds unless there is a definite problem.
Hi. I am also restoring a 101.07301. Did you replace the bearing (SKF 465233)? If you did, can you tell me the part number and the supplier?
