Warhawk- Did you replace these bearings yourself the last time around?
I highly recommend not re-using taper roller bearings with an unknown history.
Only in theory do they LAST FOREVER. Who knows what your bearings have been
through. Replacement is cheap "insurance."
Don't take my word on it though, someone else on the VMF who also
works for a bearing manufacturer just might step forward. Or not.
