Yes, it has needle bearings with a cage.

My cage came apart, and the shavings collected on the pick up coil, and killed the spark on the face of a jump, = broken femur. Last time the head was off, it showed no signs of excessive slack or side play. I could here no abnormal noise from the engine either.
