You can get a rebuilt Lehman from Industrial Engines in Delta.

Or better yet, Aiden Butterfield in Vancouver blueprints them when he rebuilds them.

Thanks for the response.

(1) I am a mechanical engineer.
(2) This is a good question. I believe both are contributing to the vibration, but visual observation of the shaft at the PSS shows me that there is some movement that isn't always there, but can manifest itself.
(3) I am already in contact with Industrial Engines and am heading over there in a couple weeks to talk directly. Didn't know about Aiden Butterfield, will have to look him up.

Cheers.
