It is OK that the bearing sits loose in the plate, but the play should not be that much and it shouldn't be falling out once assembled.AFK66 wrote:My bearing sits lose in the new plate, it falls right out and has a decent amount of play. Did I receive a defective plate?
If you are not already using it, take the 8mm shim washer from your original Acme upgrade kit. Remove the new plate and bearing, then drop the 8mm shim washer onto the Acme screw and reassemble. This should correct any play.
Also, don't forget to place a Z-Axis Shim Plate on both ends, I know I did and had to do it twice.
