Idler Shaft Assembly

Post by bainin »

On hold on the SS hotline ...so I figured I'd try to get the answer here while waiting.

I want to get a backup Idler assembly for my DIY PowerPro tool. This linked
item seems like what I want, and I do have the newer "split" eccentric shown in that service notice.

So - with this item, I assume I get the shaft (lol!) , and mounted bearings?

Anyone know?

thanks !

Yes, that part number includes the shaft and bearings. If you want the eccentric, that is a separate line item.

My internet connection is down so please double check this. I have a new PP Idler, PN is on the bag but not completely legible. Also not 522741. I think that PN is for the conventional headstock. My PP DIY book lists the Idler as 522612. That looks like a probable match for the bag I have.

No way to verify on website: no M7 headstock parts/drawings.!

If you have the PowerPro headstock that is probably what you need. The number that I gave is definitely not for the PowerPro. Sorry about that.

Do you have the manual that came with your DIY PowerPro Upgrade kit?

522612 is the correct one or the Power Pro.

My Mark 7 manual lists part number 522612 as the Idler Shaft Assembly. It is different than the Idler Shaft Assembly for the conventional headstock currently P/N 522741. On the website it is P/N 522612 PowerPro Idler Shaft Assembly at the link below.
