INNER STOCK INA CAM BEARING FAILURE

ON A

2005 FLSTFSEI (SCREAMIN' EAGLE FATBOY)

THE OWNER HEARD A FAINT WEIRD NOISE--WHAT HE REFERRED TO AS A "SQUEAL" OR A "SQUAWK" ; THAT WAS THE ONLY SYMPTOM THIS BEAUTIFUL FATBOY OFFERED WHEN IT CAME IN TO THE SHOP A FEW CLICKS SHY OF 25,000 MILES ON THE ODOMETER.

WHAT FOLLOWS IS A PHOTO ESSAY OF A DISASTROUS INA INNER CAM BEARING FAILURE & SUBSEQUENT REPAIR (THAT TURNED OUT WAY COOL).

















THE OWNER CHOSE TO REPAIR THE CAM FAILURE WITH HIGH QUALITY TORRINGTON CAM BEARINGS.  THE PHOTOS CLEARLY ILLUSTRATE HOW TORRINGTON'S ENGINEERING IS SUPERIOR TO INA.

BUT THE STORY GETS WORSE FROM HERE. GO TO THE NEXT PAGE IN THE COLUMN AT THE LEFT--"THE BAD NEWS"--TO SEE WHAT CHRIS FOUND NEXT...
