We're glad to hear that you found and fixed your problem and sorry that it had 
to be the HARD one to fix. That bearing support point is certainly a weak spot, 
and this is where these tend to wear thru and break. I't interesting, and 
useful, to know that the bugpack replacement provides more surface area here. 
Did you put a little grease on that surface?
