HT131 Drive Tube Assembly

Recommended Posts

Swampster - what part of the country are you in? I’m having a clear out and am chucking some old ht shafts away -  you’re welcome to them if you want to pick them up from Cheshire?

Thanks Monkeybusiness, I'm down South. Aldershot, a long way from Cheshire 👍 If they're working and will fit an HT 131, would you consider a courier?

They are all knackered in one way or another, but were stuffed under the bench to cobble together on a rainy day. That day never came and I need shot so have literally chucked them in a scrap trailer today then saw this thread! 

There are 5 or 6, and probably enough bits to make one or two decent ones potentially. 

I’d imagine they would be expensive to courier though, they are a bit long...

Openspaceman, was the centre star shaped shaft one long piece or two parts? 

As far as I can remember all one.

I'm on my third shaft. The bearings wear out. Fixit guy at the dealership sold me a wee bottle of special stihl polesaw shaft oil, said a light coating every once in a blue moon will do. Apparently it carries over to the bearings and increases the lifespan of the shaft

HT130 version, i striped down to clean,  put it to one side for a week then spent a sunny afternoon trying to figure out how to put it back together. Bloody nightmare. Can't be sure but I think centre shaft was one piece.

Surely if it's broken though, the broken ends will be a bit gnarly,  maybe the high points rubbed smooth but unlikely to be like the flat machined ends. I'd expect there to be some debris, if the broken ends have run against each other for any length of time, black pasty yuck if there's any oil/grease around,  sliver filings if completely dry.....

HTH.

Be good to know the answer to this when you get one. ...
