Re: OI 41 Drive Trane Growling

I recently replaced the "carrier bearing" at the same time I replaced my shaft and changed to a Dripless Shaft Seal. Most of my noise abatement was a result of the new carrier bearing. For my 1&1/4" shaft I replaced the bearing with a VXB bearing part number ucf207-20 (code=Kit 11520). I think what I've been referring to as a carrier bearing is the same as you are describing as the intermittent bearing,- on the shaft between the engine coupling and the stuffing box. Take care and joy, Aythya crew
