I thought about that, but with the big metal ball holding the shaft and the spring applying pressure inside the bell, where's it going to go even if it's loose?Hal wrote:I didn't fancy removing the bell from the shaft myself as I was worried it'd be too loose when replaced, so after cleaning with petrol I used cotton-wool buds and metal polish spinning the buds between the shaft and the bell. Then made sure there was no cotton fibre still in there and clean with petrol.
I'm not sure exactly what it is. It's purpose seems to be to assist in keeping it from unscrewing. But as Old Fogey found out, lock-tite on the screw will overpower whatever it is (at least on a NEW switch.) viewtopic.php?p=190021#p190021Hal wrote:Only thing I'm slightly concerned about is the mention of 'epoxy' as the seal on the surface.....I used Araldite, but I'm not sure the original is actually epoxy glue, as it seems to come off surprisingly easily with a fine screwdriver....in fact some of mine was already missing
