031324 Taylor Shell Bearing Replacement from Soft Serve Parts
What is a shell bearing? A shell bearing is the part that the beater's drive shaft goes through. The shell bearing's main function is to seal the ice cream from leaking out of the rear of the freezing barrel into the inside of the Taylor machine. The shell bearing also is there to prevent dirty grease or particles from working their way into your ice cream.
How do I know if my shell bearing needs to be replaced? The 1st sign is excessive leakage into the black slide out drip trays even though you have new drive shaft seals installed and they are sufficiently lubricated. If your drip trays accumulate more than a tablespoon of grease or ice cream in a week that is a sign of a problem with either your shell bearing or the drive shaft seal needs to be replaced. In the pictures you can see what an extremely worn out shell bearing looks like, this is an extreme example, if you have any degree of the mushrooming shown in the pictures you should replace the shell bearing.
This Shell Bearing Fits Most Taylor Models.
