Does unit 522F mean anything?
Not sure on the part number, doesn't look like a valid part number to me. No way for me to be able to tell you for sure. The mv40 spindles were integral even back then I believe. 90-92 would be for sure. So the rotor diameter would have to be the same as well as the spindle housing diameter length, cooling grooves, etc. I honestly don't think they would be since mori changed the whole drawbar type in those years, but again, without having them side by side I couldn't tell you ya or na.

I have no way to check part numbers any longer since I took a cushy job. Usually they had a letter followed by a 6-10 digit number. I'd try calling your local rep and ask for a written quote. They put part numbers on the quotes...
kind of like
I will do some more digging. thanks again

I read that you have "Mori Seiki Electrical circuit diagram", I have a Mori Seiki MV40 but beside the maintenance manual and operating manual I didn't receive any other documentation with the machine so I was wondering if you are willing to share with me?
all i have to offer is mu operating manual and the 2 years experiance that i have with this machine
I also asked about replacing the ceramic taper and they said that the insert can not be replaced but a new shaft has to be installed with the ceramic built in.
it is definitely CAT I have the same arm on my machine.
the taper on my machine also has some small cracks but it runs just fine so try it first like it is, and then if it damaged a lot, than change it...
what about that "Mori Seiki Electrical circuit diagram" can you send it to me ???
Sorry, for some reason i was unable to respond for the last couple days. Yes it's CT40. It was SUPER common for a MV40/FM1, FM2, SV50,500,503 MV40E, etc to come in as a BT machine if they weren't ordered CT. Factory Standard was BT. Its not the whole arm that gets changed, just the "claws" on the end and nothing else.(unless it had flange style through tool coolant) At one time I probably had 10 sets of BT claws that were swap outs from dealer change. And by "shaft" they really mean spindle. It's cheaper and better to send to a rebuild company that can put a steel insert in. Had several done over the years.
Getting closer and closer to making chips with this thing,
For spindle and way oil, Does anyone have any recommendations? How often should I change it? I am assuming the best thing to do is drain the oil that came in the machine and put in fresh before i fire it up for the first time?
Way oil tank should be cleaned every year. There is a small filter on the pick up of the pump. Just a disk, but if it hasn't been changed it will look like just a bunch of slime. Make sure you get it out and clean or replace it. An excato knife works well to just get in between the disk and metal body to pop it out. There may also be a filter on the discharge line. Clean that to. Should be vactra#2 or tonna 68, unless there is a sticker for tonna32 or vac1, but it really doesn't matter what one you use, since it's a box way machine. I prefer vac2.
Spindle oil every year or two. There is also a pickup filter in the tank. PIA to get to btw. That should be velocite #6. Wear gloves with that stuff. It's very thin and soaks in to your skin. You'll taste it all day if you don't.
Remove way covers and clean all the crap out now, it will keep your coolant fresher longer.
Oh, and check the oil in the unclamp cylinder on top of the spindle. MAKE sure the air is off! Don't drain it, you'll be sorry. That is DTE 24 or tellus 32.
