The BE is $126.63, but their quality has diminished lately. One customer has been through 3 of them in 2 months. I'm not happy.
The Talon III has been replaced by the Talon IV, a non-greasable Mosmatic swivel.
Change is not always for the better.
Our classic puts our BE's too shame. Runs circles around it.Geez Ralph, when you put like that, the $269 price tag on the gp hammerhead doesn't look so purty...
Did you get your 22hp setup?
If you break down the swivel assembly the bearings are actually not completely sealed, there is a gaurd on one side of both bearings but were they meet does not have a shield.Yes John, that's that. Drilling it for a grease fitting isn't a good idea. For one, the outlet for the hole has to be exactly between the two bearings. Secondly, if it's non-greaseable, the bearings are sealed instead of open sided, so the grease won't have anywhere to go.
The only thing you can do is replace it with a greaseable swivel.
