The vacuum pump shaft that spins the oil pump was worn, I guess the theory
was that with that groove being worn open
it caused the intermediate shaft to wobble and it beat up the intermediate
Almost sounds like I would need to pull the crank to get to that rear
How do you mean it threw the int. shaft off? A lot of these engines get
"rebuilt" without doing these bearings. There are a lot of things that
in Bentley. For one, it's more of an owner's repair manual than a tech's.
The factory manual has more info on various things but I don't know just
how to get one. These were also considered a non-replacement item I
seem to remember reading somewhere. They weren't available anywhere
for the longest time.
