Davis anemometer replacement

Post by jlmr731 »

Not sure if this has been discussed about replacement of the wind bearing Cartridge for Davis VP.
Mine stop spinning kinda been doing it for a while tried cleaning it but only last for a while, so I got a new one off amazon for $20 US and was very easy to install. Set screw for the cups and 1 phillips screw that held it in. Dont know if this is an updated part from Davis as it seem to be built better to protect the bearings from the weather.

here is the new one

I had to replace the cartridge in mine recently and the new cartridge is a different design to the older one. Probably a design flaw corrected I would imagine.

I bought mine from a Davis-approved company here in England. Never bothered looking on Amazon.
