It wasn't the shaft that broke, the hub came loose and spun off. They are all pressed on and could have the same failure, although I would believe the quality of the Moroso is better.

I may tack weld the hub to the shaft on the new one...

boothboy Years ago I had a similar experience. Seventy mph down the freeway and BAM!!!!! Micro seconds later I got to watch a fan blade exit my hood. In case you glossed over what I just said let me repeat it. Seventy mph, BAM!!!!!, fan blade, exit hood.
Then the vibration started. By the time I got pulled over and the hood opened my water pump had un-bolted itself from the block. This was a BBC. I bolted the water pump back on and limped off the freeway. Got pulled over at a gas station.and the water pump had un-bolted itself again.
Fun time!

Too Many Projects No warning, just sudden and catastrophic failure, soon after the slimy Radial TA's had given up their grip on the road and the car was starting to drift nicely.

OK, maybe the rpm was a tad higher...

I hear ya! And how can not only it be worth money, why do you need buildings, HUGE buildings and thousands upon thousands of employees to make "nothing" work? It's bizarre!

Right near me, "Silicon valley" is where this all happened and there are HUGE "campuses" like Google and Facebook. millions of square foot buildings covering blocks and blocks! Facebook has a building with a park on top with trees and grass. Google has bars and restaurants that are free to employees! NO KIDDING!

Both the buildings you ses in this photo are Facebooks. Yes the one with the trees and stuff is a three or four story building.


All to produce NOTHING!

If you can't squeeze the receptacle down enough to hold the bulb tight, you could try brass shim stock wrapped around the bulb base.

OR, last resort DUCT TAPE..
The inner one was shredded, used for the Alt. I think I didn't pay enough attention to it and it just blew. I'm going to loosen it up and check the alt shaft to make sure that's not floppin' around. Although, it looks fine when running. Then it took out the outer one for the A/C. The inner one never completely broke....

I squeezed the socket down a couple weeks ago, but it didn't seem to squeeze down at the bottom so it still moved around. Is the brass on the bulb the ground? If so, I don't see how it's grounding. The socket mount is riveted to the light housing which is plastic and bolted to the fiberglass.

I was wonder about using electrical tape? May be staining the house the next few days to finish off that project. So it may be a few days b/4 I work on the car...
