Yeah really... at that point I might as well either yank the good pickup
rollers from the Apple, or for $30 just buy another set.

Yeah, I have done this repair on my Apple LW IINT once before... I will
most likey buy another kit for the HP when the fuser on it dies (it has a
nasty scar across it, and is starting to peel... it is still printing
fine with no adverse marks, but I suspect in a few months of decent use,
that will stop being the case)
