So is there an easy way for me to determine if the spindle is fine or do I need to send it out to someone to inspect so they can tell me if it is fine? Since it was hanging up in the machine and not now, is that a pretty strong case that the spindle is fine? Should I ask Yamazen to try reinstalling the old one and if it works ask for my money back on the new spindle and just pay for labor? What a waste to pay 6G's for a potentially loose set screw haha!
Maybe I missed, but did you look for a rubbed balancing setscrew in the coupling?

Nope...I was going to but 1) it sounds like that likely would have been replaced with the new spindle and 2) I took a peek for the access cover and did not see it. Do I need to remove the turret sheet metal cover? I tried lowering the Z axis all the way but didn't see it like the one on the diagram Frank shared. Maybe I just need to look harder as it must be there somewhere!
