Whew. That was too close for comfort. Will you bring the drum up to Pyramid. I've had bearing and warpage failures but never anything like this.
Any sign of overheating? Clean snap like metal fatigue? If I may quote Kevbo..

That's the thing. Everything looks normal, with the exception of the wheel and drum being in the middle of the street a half block behind the moho. We'll see what the shop figures out.

Is the "little birdie thing" gonna be that "wild card entry"? I am guessing it may be a bird without wings? Hummmmm, that's it, it is like a humming bird, but without wings. Forum rally rules do allow any "wheeled vehicle" with aluminum construction, that could be interesting.

I almost had a friend of mine talked into flyin his R-22 down! Then his wife slapped him. But I did also meet - Karl - an interesting fellow who just got an Argosy Moho. I told him about the forums, he seemed somewhat interested yet recluse. No info as to his residence other than the foothills of No.Cal. He seemed interested in a MoHo race tho! He was stopped on the side of the freeway. unintentionally.

Looks like the outer bearing disintegrated. With the rollers gone, the outer race can slip over the inner race and nut. Had to have been noisy for a while.

New sign up...welcome

Excella CM,

I see you signed up on the Rally Calendar. Welcome aboard, did you make a reservation with the resort? We will hook you up with a space# and post it on the Rally Calendar.

John

That could be. The only bearing I could find was the inner. But I didn't know if maybe the outer one was out in the street somewhere. With the radio playing, and road noise, we never heard a thing.

Wow. Sorry to hear the news. Scary. Glad all the humans and canines are fine.

(This really did happen right...it's not just an excuse to handicap the race is it? Or maybe it's an excuse to go ahead and buy the third MoHo???)

In any case I hope it's fixed soon and at least you'll be rallying with one of your fleet.

1. Yes, we're registered for Pyramid!
2. The outer race should still be in the drum and the inner race will be behind the nut. The rollers are probably unrecognizable bits in the street somewhere.

Hi, that's exactly how that happens; And that is why we need to check and repack our trailer wheel bearings. [and tag axles and tow vehicle front wheel bearings] If the outer bearing inner race is blue and welded to the spindle, it's axle time. GOOD LUCK.

California Rally

Did this happen? I'm really delayed in joining this forum. If not...if so, we can definitely get one going in No Cal near the coast this summer. Anyone in? I'll do the location scouting.

Hi and Welcome VA!

Pick a place and a date and they will come. You might want to start a new thread and ask for possible dates, places and peeps that might be available. If you plan ahead I'm sure you will get takers to join you.

C'mon down to this rally and meet some nice folks! There will be some NorCal people there.

(It hasn't happened yet...starts this Friday the 20th)
-Bam

There's a Norcal in Oct. near Paso Robles.

C'mon down and join us. We'll be straight down the 5 from the 80.
