27 END Concluding information
To ensure a proper repair, purchase a new bearing and seal retainer, all available at the location below. If the new bearing is equipped with a built in rubber or plastic seal retainer then a seal retainer is not required.
The bearing can be repaired if a bearing is not available and the bearing had been producing a screeching sound rather than a course sound. Just press in grease, seal it tight and finish it with a seal retainer (separately for $5.95, + $2 SH, Torrance, CA) Please check back for dealer's full address.
