I'm rebuilding a HDR-300 that I got as a basket case. Unfortunately, I've never seen one totally together and I have some questions.
I'm pretty sure that I'm missing the ring on the output shaft that bears all the load of the mast (so to speak--this is the job the thrust bearing should be doing). Is there anything special about this keeper ring on the output shaft. From what I can tell, this ring is just about the flat bearing.
Also, I'm open to recommendations on what else I should be doing why I have this all over the bench.
Who ever took this apart, also removed the nylon gear for the pot and the arm for the limit switch. I'm pretty I can get this reinstalled with little or no effort.
Lastly, there seems to be a short shaft missing from the bottom of the Pot to the casting. There was no sign of this part, and Hy-Gain doesn't show it in their exploded diagrams. Is this required?
Many thanks in advance...
