Sounds as if you may have a concurrent problem with your valves sticking. This can cause the cast followers to break.

I have had at least 5 followers fail. three have shed the rollers. Two stretched the loops around the bearing and one of these got caught between the con-rod and a counterweight.
This damaged the con-rod and it subsequently broke causing serious damage.
I have tried to obtain some second hand ones but so far no replies. I cant work out how the private messaging works on this site. There seems to be no way of accessing a member and no way of commencing a message.
One person in New York wanted US$250 for each follower which I could not afford. At present I am looking at getting some made by a local machine shop here in Tasmania.

Phil,

If the Forum Member has made a post, its a simple matter of clicking on that Forum Name in the post they have made then clicking on the PM Link button there and filling in the blanks.

To do it "cold" you need to go the User Menu(upper left of page) clicking on Inbox, scroll down and click on the Send button, click on List, search through the list until you find and select the user you want to send the message to, then fill in the blanks.

Now isn't that "intuitive"?
