here is something to beware of when installing new bearings. not all new bearing are always grease good.
I like to use a dental pick to pop of the seal.
check out how little amount of grease was installed in this one. 3/4's of it is still dry on one side of it..:doah:

Right on. These bearings almost seem serviceable.

Have also opened up old/used bearings and found similarly scant amounts of grease--but it's easy to assume it leaked out or sort of vaporized over time...
I'm experimenting with repacking used bearings that still have life left in them. Ones that were rough and noisy before; a little grease makes them slick as snot.

What's the ID (name or numbers) on these bearings, Delray?
