Parts Used:
Shaft/Hinge Upper Wheel - 824283
Repair Difficulty:
Easy
Time Spent Repairing:
15-30 minutes
Tools Used:
Wrench Set, hammer
The orginal aluminum casting was poor. Broke under normal pressure.
The original shaft had a slight bevel / taper to it, to accommodate installing the wheel.
The new one did not have it. I used a little spray lube and a block of wood and a
hammer carefully. Make sure it is straight.

Very good C.S.R. Thank you

Repair Difficulty:
Easy
Time Spent Repairing:
15-30 minutes
Tools Used:
Wrench Set, Dead blow hammer
Wheel was a little tight on the new shaft
The wheel fit on the shift a little tighter than I expected it would. I had to use a dead blow hammer to get the wheel on to the shaft. After three or four wacks I got it on far enough to get the nut to start threading on the shaft. Then I was able to get it seated with the nut. Fairly easy fix.
