I have a Henny Penny scr-8 that goes threw the brass bushing that the wheels spin on. Is there a grease or lube that's suppose to be used.
It has been a couple years since my last repair of HP SCR-8. however I believe
there is no lubrication of the parts that I am aware, and after reviewing the service and operator manuals it doesn't call for any.
is this the bearing you have failing:
If so the spit support plate just slips over this brass bushing.
if it is failing prematurely I would investigate the cleaning routine.
spit support plate should be removed nightly and cleaned with all the other spits, hooks, and pans
make sure the hole in the hub is being cleaned as well
I would also make sure the hub of the support plate doesn't have any wear within.
if it isn't smooth and round it may be wearing out the brass faster.
they can become egg shaped if the below is happening:
lastly if these seem to look ok make sure when the operator is loading less than full loads it is spread out/balanced.
if only say 2 full spits of chicken are not opposite each other on the spit support plates all of that weight will be sitting on one side of the wheel(spit support) causing premature wear.
Also check the trueness of the shaft. If bent at the end it will make excessive wear. Good rinsing is important to prevent cleaners from reacting with the metal.
