1) The complete car assembly has not been available for at least the last five years, if not longer.

2) There were originally two different cars used by Catalina. Refer to the engineering drawing. Notice that both ball bearings and simple slides are pictured. Replacement slides are no longer available. This kit includes new end caps which have the necessary channels in them to return the ball bearings into the secondary channel (on each side of the car) to make the bearings recirculating. This is the only kit available.

3) You must load new bearings into the car with the car nearly all the way onto the track. You will want someone to hold a towel under the boom to catch dropped balls as you load them into the car.

Note: Z4355 is a stock part, so you may return it per of standard return policy (only if you are a Catalina owner). However, the kit contains many unique parts, all of which are required to make a complete kit. They are made in England so we can't purchase the parts individually. If you return the kit minus even one of the parts, the kit is effectively trash and cannot be resold. If the kit is returned incomplete, no refund will be offered. We have provided all of the dimensions so you can determine if this kit will work for you in advance of ordering. Please choose carefully.
