I've watched the 2nd video of the failure over and over and from what I can see the self aligning bearings that failed were in the link between the eccentric and the top arm. Do I have that right?

The top bearing could be a heim joint since it doesn't rotate much. The bottom bearing does need to rotate with the eccentric, so maybe a better bearing? Or spacers/washers to keep them contained?
