Anyone have a suggestion for how to repair a slipping tuning drive on a Radio Ltd BCU? The steel drive wheel is slipping in the groove of the rubber wheel which is worn and cracked. Anyone have a spare rubber wheel or know how to make one?
That Rubber wheel grommet in your photo isnt original James, you can buy a grommet set from Mitre10 for about $10? the others handy for chassis, you have to stretch it over the metal bearing. Ive filled the groove with a small rubber tubing and rubber cement glue, it works ok, i havent had any slipping so far...

James, I remembered how I fixed this in the past, I used a grommet like the one in your photo, though I doubled the thickness of the drive disk by adding another of the same diameter, the thicker disk then gripped the inner side walls of the grommet so didnt slip
