Thanks for the info. I ordered a set of those bearings and I'll might replace the rollers when I have time. No problem with them at the moment but they are probably getting loose, or will eventually.I actually bought these spacers couple of years ago.
We had several odysseys and I just documented the last replacement I had to do.
do you have a part number for the Zinc plated brass spacers? And source?The roller guide rail channels are made of stainless steel and no wear and tear or noise concerns.
The roller pins are made of mild steel and harder than the brass. Brass spacers will wear on the steel pins much slower than the nylon material.
No friction concerns for the ball bearings as the inner lace is always stationary.
McMaster-Carr, McMaster.comdo you have a part number for the Zinc plated brass spacers? And source?
SS bearings would be a better option for you, as the inner lace of the bearing will preserve the steel pins from the wear. Especially with graphite and other hard mineral contaminants.If this works - great. I live on gravel and I have to replace both sides every 2 years. The nylon bearing and the gravel dust dont mix.
30 minutes for shopping parts and replacement, strongI found plastic rollers at Home Depot in the Hardware bin drawers. It's a 1/4" plastic roller/sleeve. Similar size.
My rollers were completely gone and I hammered into the pins.
Not a permanent fix but works fine after a week. Took about 30 minutes.
