R52 double pivot on clean grain auger
I spotted one of the u joint caps on the double pivot at the bottom of the auger in the grain bin was gone when I wanted to grease the perks. Since I needed a new auger, I replaced it the double pivot and also also the bearings on the jack shaft that turns it. When I went to turn the auger it would turn 1/2 way and then would bind up as both of the u-joints will hit on their housings . In looking at the old one you could see that it hit on itself also and wore out the housing probably causing the cap to come free from the shock of hitting itself. Both the old and new pivot joints will not bend as far one way as the other way. Has anyone else had this problem or have a way to stop this from happening?
