    yep cheers eddy, watched this and a similar one. I`ve no problem re packing it, its just at the last circuit there`s a big gap left, this nut hasn't been used yet and I needed to turn it around so I decided to strip it and on counting the balls thought 50 is a strange number so that's why I `m asking

    well mine ended up with 51 total, 17 in each circuit.

    I thinking that should be right and mine has one missing, it felt ok and still feels ok now I`ve turned it, it was just an observation as I noticed the wipers looked like they`ve been in and out before, I think I`ll have a root about at work tomorrow and see if I can find any.

    linearmotionbearings2008 (Chai) is one of the most used Chinese suppliers for this forum I think. Quality seems consistent with the price but I have not used any other similar products for comparison.

    Other used ebay sellers I've seen mentioned are; solar.jean , supermario-au
    Strangely you sometimes have to log into ebay.com to see the listings.
