Pulley and Coupling
Coupling Bearing Inspection
Since the coupling bearing [A] is made to extremely close
tolerances, the clearance cannot normally be measured.
Wash the bearing with a high-flash point solvent, dry it (do
not spin it while it is dry), and oil it.
Spin it by hand to check its condition.
If it is noisy, does not spin smoothly, or has any rough
spots, it must be replaced.
If the same bearing is to be sued again, re-wash it with
a high-flash point solvent, dry it, and pack it with good
quality bearing grease before installation.
Turn the bearing by hand a few times to make sure the
grease is distributed uniformly inside the bearing.
