Kit 10 bearing housings

Post  NorfolkModelSteam on Wed 25 Apr 2018, 9:55 pm

Quick question...I received kit 10 today and had a look at everything this evening; the right hand bearing housing doesnít fit, Iíve slackened off the bolts holding the spectacle plates but not enough movement to get it to fit, did anyone else have a problem?

I had to removed about 1.5 to 2mm on my 4" Burrell to get mine to fit.

Morning Greg
I am not at the same stage as you with this kit yet but I offered the housing to the horn plate last night and it fit like a glove. there is No room for paint on the spigot its that good a fit but will see what happens when the spectacle plate is fitted.
I will try it tonight and see, that's assuming that I get home at a reasonable hour.

Hi Norfork

Looks like your casting was not set correctly in the CNC and the hole pattern is offset.
Have a word with STW as I would guess a replacement is needed.

well made it home at last and have just finished checking out "me bits" I will need to remove about half a mill from both edges of my bearing housing to allow the spectacle plates to be fitted.

Lynn if the casting fits the horn-plate and all the holes align without the spectacle plates fitted as mine do, then is the error not in the spectacle plate alignment? just a thought as grinding off is a sinch but grinding it back on now that's hard.

Thank you both! I heard back from Ian at STW and he has suggested as long as the holes line up on the horn plate and bearing housing itís ok to file down the edge of the bearing housing so thatís what Iíll be doing this weekend!

Filed a bit of the sides, works ok.
