Which EB 8800 part?


Question

Hi all,

I have an EB 8800 on the bench and the third wheel has broken.

I see from the service sheet that this piece comes in two flavors.

But I don't know which one I need.  Cousins have them both in stock and listed as...

Third Wheel ( 210 ), EB 8800

Third Wheel, Upper Conical Pivot ( 217 ), EB 8800

 

Any ideas how I could find out?  I would hazard a guess that I need 217 as the remaining pivot I can see has a conical end?

 

Many thanks,

Ash.

How about refitting the arbour?  Peen the hole and refitt.

Would have been a good idea but it looks like one of the pivots are broken too.

Yeah, I thought the pivot was broken, it looks a bit short.  I will use this broken part to practice on.  Not to derail my original question, but by peen do you mean hit it with a staking set to close the hole a little?  If so, which stake would you use?

The hole looks shagged to me and will likely turn untrue if just closed with a stake. 
 

I think you may need the cone bearing type as it’s unjewelled - check the remaining original pivot to confirm the profile of the tip.
