Go to the other side of the bearing where the saw motor itself is bolted on, there sould be 6 or 8 bolts there that hold the bearing assembly tight to the frame. Check to make sure they haven't come loose. If they have then put permanent loc-tite on them before putting them back in. Even better is to replace with new bolts and permanent loc-tite.

There is a bearing and a gear inside the housing but i would be quite surprised if either one of those went.

The bearing in this location tends to go bad on My Processor and Delimber if I run my chains too tight for very long..

The saw motor itself is tight with no play. Do I get to the bearing by removeing the saw motor, or by comeing in from the bottom?

Are there any bolts back there other than the 4 for the saw motor ?

The bearing and gears in the Ponsse H73 head i run are original and the head is a 2004 and any of the Waratah heads i have run were original as well and they had about the same amount of years in service.

You will have to take the saw motor out i imagine.

I found my problem. I was trying to cut the trees to close to the ground. Where the butt "flares" was contacting the metal houseing that holds the saw bar. This would not allow the saw to cut. I still tend to try cutting to low, but when i do I just slide the head up a few inches and then it cuts right through. I finished the week with no major breaks on this machine, so I was happy. My production is slowly comeing up, I am able to keep 1 skidder busy. With time, hopefully can do better.
    Thanks to everyone who replied to my questions. Its amazeing to me how I can ask a question and get so much help from people I dont even know.
