Needs a bushing

As someone else said it needs a bushing.
The lever flaps around and is not aligned with the feeder bearing.
I am going back to original plastic one which correctly aligns the arm with the bearing.

Great improvement on my 3D printer

For me adding, adding the replacement lever and extruder plate to my 3D printer removed the frustrations I was experiencing with the stock plastic version that came with the printer. Now my printer reliability feeds and I do not need to keep replacing the plastic lever every several months. If you are looking to replace your broken factory lever/extruder plate or you wish to upgrade to a better solution, I would recommend this product.

Needs a bushing

The milling work looks good. When I installed mine and tighten the screw enough so it isn't loose it binds up enough not to work well. They should have drilled the pivot hole slightly larger and included a bushing. For a 50 cent bushing this would get a 5 star instead of a 3 star. I am drilling mine out and installing a bushing.

I have now bought 35 of these.

I have 35 duplicator i3s in my print farm and 31 of them have broken and needed this part. The lever works great and adds a lot of reliability. I would recommend replacing the plastic piece before it breaks as they have a very high failure rate and it is sometimes difficult to trace down the problem because the bearing will seem to spin fine but will jam after being reinstalled any you will keep clogging till you finally figure it out.

If you dont have it...get it!!!!

I'm here to tell you, this is it!! I could tell a difference in my prints. How? I used the exact same file I was trying to print with no success UNTIL I put this kit on. I was amazed how great my prints turn out now!!! Guys, ditch the plastic extruder off your printer and get this. No regrets. If you dont have the hot end kit, you are missing out. I got that first before I got the extruder kit. Thank goodness for a company like Micro Swiss!!!!
