Oilite bronze for slow revving extreme torque applications like oil expellers, drilling rigs, tunnel borers and the likes.

Anyway, I would be very wary of fitting anything that would be metal to metal contact when the rubbers fail. At least with the Centa, when it fails you have to get the vehicle recovered but there is little damage other than simple replacement of the rubbers. Metal to metal could lead to a very expensive disaster indeed.

When I see this picture I can only draw the conclusion that most of us don’t have to worry much when we have the Centa fitted.

They look very good indeed especially after all those miles.

Looks more than likely I’ll have to sack the HD comp and fit the Centa.

I had become quite fond of the HD comp. in a bizarre sort of way now that I have become more intimately aquatinted with its moving parts.

Inspecting through the grease hole, my Centa rollers look good after 12,000 miles but I will find out for sure when I take the engine out next week for Phils mods. My rollers were fitted just over two years ago and were supplied to me by MMC as "improved trial" items. They seem to have lasted better than the original early 2015 items that fell apart after just under 10,000 miles. Maybe all you need to do is have post 2017 Centa rollers fitted? That said, Phil Bleazeys mods do much more for the feel of the car than just improve drivetrain life.

My 2015 has had frayed bits of rubber come out of the inspection hole. Naturally come warranty time the dealer said something like "nothing to worry about sir" and "you would know if they had failed" (yes, I found bits of rubber smile )... but so far no issues with performance. I have to fit the Phil-mod for the bevel box before I worry about the rollers...

My original rollers are from 2014.when mine was one of the earliest cars to be upgraded from the Harley to Centa.

Chris, your rollers really are in remarkably good condition for the mileage. You are obviously doing something right!
I was recently with Mr Bleazey replacing the rollers of a 11000 mile 2014 car - one roller was completely broken up and the other three weren't far behind. confused2

Would it make sense (or is it possible) to make the ˋgrease hole ˋ bigger so we could easily exchange the rollers like on the Phil Bleazey upgrade ? Or is it only possible to cut this hole bigger when the engine is out ?
