Bill,

 

Yes.  That’s all you need – so long as you already have the proper CW’s.

I picked up the long 1.875" shaft and another stop. Should be good to go. 🙂

Grats on the expansing A-P arsenal. Yeah, you need to get one of the three varieties of 1.875" diameter CW shafts here:

If your Mach1 came with CW shaft and shaft safety stops that lack the delrin washer, ask A-P to send you a set as well.

Anyhow, I want to be able to use the existing counterweights I have for my 1100. In this case do I just need the bigger bar, and nothing more -- or do I need to replace something else as well?
