    Maybe they changed,i think they were taken over by another company
    My problem with the same Katun rebuild kits is limp dick cleaning blades that started offsetting with a week.

    as one who sold a lot of 220,270,1022,2022 used machines I had about 35 "bad drum units"over time and rebuilt them to save money..
    It was FOOLS GOLD as i spent more time on recalls.
    I have done a lot of other cartridges over the years,panafax,HP etc and I just
    never thought Katun ever cared about these kits.weak blades and weak drum surface...

    Re: PCU rebuild kit for '03 series

    We started using kits supplied to us by local non- genuine parts dealer. They ran good for a while but have just started to hit some problems. Has a few kits fitted to the 60 page a minute copiers fail around the 20k mark. I have complained to supplier and they said they would pass it on to their suppliers in China but no resolution so far.
    We have two theories, first is that the latest batch of kits are using a different composition lube bar and that is contaminating the charge roller and the other is that the lube applying roller is breaking up. That said, the kits we fitted earlier on seem to be doing the job.
    Interesting to note that the charge roller supplied in the kit appears to be genuine Ricoh charge roller in a genuine looking box with the part number AD02 7050. Tried to order these directly from Ricoh but they say the number isn't valid. Makes me wonder if it is a part that Japan hasn't released to Australia or just a reasonably good Chinese fake.

    Also had the local Katun dealer around the other day trying to drum up business but when asked about kits said they didn't have them yet. Since the majority of out fleet is MP C '03's and '04's they are going to miss out on a lot of potential sales.

    At least 50% of IT is a solution looking for a problem.
