Recently acquired a third gen #3 C. S. Bell. When I took it apart I found that a past owner had replaced the eye bolt with a 7/16″ piece. The yoke and bowl both have a 3/4″ bore.
What is the correct eye bolt diameter? Others I’ve seen have a ½” eye bolt… same as my #2. I’ve considered using a 5/8″ eye bolt. Would that be overkill?
