Thanks for all the posts and info.
Got a RS6 a few weeks ago and your info on bearing changes will help me a lot as the bearings are noisy.
Maybe just a good clean is all that is needed. Will only know when it is apart.
Also thinking that while the shaft is out to change to a multi 'V' drive system. Smoother and quieter.

Phil Not sure where this is on the forum as I.m using s
an iPad instead of my prop computer….
Anyway I bought a Wadkin R6 that has had the V belt conversion and a new motor with a VFD…

Vann, on the forum (a Wadkin font of all knowledge) says mine is 1939 if I remember correctly
so should have had a flat belt orig….
I’m in the UK at the mo getting my pacemaker checked out but will be back home in a week…

Clogs, can you give me the RS number again (or the test no.) please. Some of the dating info we had for that period has been revised, thanks to new information.

Cheers, Vann.
