Yeah, NOTHING lasts forever. I'm thinking right now that just replacing the parts that are in the kit will fix me up for several more years. Those two largest bushings seem to be the key to the whole "overhaul".
I had accidentally run mine for almost two years without the "dirt plugs" inserted. Had a lot of grit in the mechanisms, but doesn't appear to have caused any excess wear.
I'll bet having to pay for those two extra pieces you got would have been pretty pricey.
Now I just gotta figure out how to get those larger bushings out; probably with a properly sized "drift" and a rubber mallet.
