I was just kidding bud. The only way I see that happening is if it was both over-hardened in production AND over-torqued in assembly... Which is possibly apparently.I know how to take off a bolt but thanks , as soon as the bolt was loosened the washed crumbled, just giving a heads
Can you take photos of the opposite side of the washer? Just curious to see where the fracture propagated from, either from the sprocket (circular mark maybe?) or the bolt.
It seems like the cracks start from 4 features from the sprocket that are about 90degrees apart. Just seems too consistent to be a manufacturing defect of the washer. Do you happen to have photos of the original sprocket?
