    Warning:

    Wear safety glasses to avoid injury when using compressed air or any cleaning solvent. Bodily injury may occur if fumes are inhaled or if skin is exposed to chemicals.

  • Inspect the cage bearings for being bent or for having damaged cages.

  • Replace mated bearing parts when only one part is damaged.
  • Inspect the thrust washers for scoring or wear.
  • Replace any faulty thrust washers.
  • Do not file surfaces which have been hardened and precision ground.
