Exactly how I feel..

Mostly the bearings need to be replaced



As far as installing.. I made a 2 piece drift on my lathe. Top section is threaded, and the bottom piece is the pilot which centers in the frame both with the race installed or not. Then i thread on my nut (on the road) and begin to tighten the nut. The drift will insert the race into the frame. Very clean


If you need photos, i can post.
