Mine has crapped itself after 3000miles. Bearing is absolutely dry. I got in touch with Rob about a month ago and he was going to send a replacement bearing. However since the conversation has dried up with no replies from Rob. No answering of the Pineapple Racing phone either?

Does anyone know if he actually IS dead?

Or has he decided not to honour the lifetime warranty of this product....

Either way I just want a new bearing at his cost to get the car running again...

Belt was at factory tightness if not looser.

Rob has just emailed me back now. Apparantly the emails I sent made their way into the wrong directory.... (I think as he is in this thread above he will have been notified of posts by this forum and hence prompted).

Sounds like it is on it's way so will be sorted soon enough now.

Nope.
So after the bull about not seeing emails then I got told it was too expensive to send replacement bearings internationally. Then he tried to look at a local place and order them for me, and he decided that was too expensive too and stopped replying to my emails.
The bearings weren't cheap for their size.
Not to mention the belt spec chart was wrong and the original belt didn't fit so I had to buy a new belt on day one.

Support someone else.

That does not sound quite right, I'll as Rob about it the next time I stop by. I know he had a belt issue with his supplier (got me too).

Mine just failed, exactly like the picture that was posted. I will pull it apart this weekend, and will look for a part number on the bearing

***I know this is an old thread, just posting information for other people***

Pulled the idler pulley last night, will remove the bearing from the pulley sometime this weekend. For the time being, the pulley seems to have TWO bearings, both bearings are bad, but the front one (the one facing the radiator) is that one that crapped out. The rear bearing has a stamped number, which is 6302RS

I will post additional info as I get to it.

Ok, last one for today, found this bearing, not sure if its a better quality than the one that came with the pulley:

yes, 2 bearings.

what happens is dirt gets into the bearing and destroys it.

I purchased 2 NSK bearings off ebay for a good price and they are doing very well. some few thousands of miles on them with no problems. Just need a high quality same bearing. NSK, KOYO are the ones I like. Timken probably isn't bad either. I would avoid any no name ones IMO.
