The bearings I removed had a clay like substance in there, presumably,the old grease. They were grinding in side. The bike is an 89 model and a bargain pick up well neglected, and stored for some time. I'm impressed with how easily the rear wheel spins now, must be good for a few more miles to the gallon. It all helps. Along with the peace of mind it creates. Oh and the back wheel now is clean as a whistle. One small failure though, the alloy brake rod that stops the caliper from rolling forward came apart at the weld. I now will make another out of box steel. More work!
