    Rodend corrosion

    Recently replaced push-pull rodends due to play that felt excessive. Total time in service 425 hours. What I found might be of some interest (see attached photos). My ELA 07S Couger maintance manual recommend change at 500 hours. The only external indication was a small light aera of corrosion at the jam nut. Required mouse milk to loosen and remove. Internal threads cleaned and were unaffected. Replaced with (metric) Aurora MM-M10 rated at 20603 N. Read an short article that indicated metric threads were more susceptible to corrosion?
