The bending might be stuck, give the starter a couple raps with a hammer.

Call Clay Smith Cam, George Strirgel 714-523-0530. The man knows more about what makes a jet go fast, then anybody. I am willing to bet, the jet boat crowd know that name.

Oil is always flowing to the back, you could spin a bearing. Oil pick should be to the rear.  Dooley oil pans, Anaheim is the way to go. 714-630-6436.  Terry

Trailers / Re: Chinese wheel bearings?
« on: March 14, 2018, 05:34:11 PM »
Koyo bearing are made in Japan. I have worked on cars, boat trailers,trucks, etc. I have never had county of country bearing go bad. With boat trailers, even with buddy bearing, moisture will get in. I myself pull my huds off about every five years. Rubber lip seal get wet and dry out after awhile.i clean the hubs, inspect the bearing and races. And repack with blue marine grease and a new seal. I have boated for 55 years, Parker Strip, and Lake Havasu, and never had a bearing go bad, no matter where they came from. Terry
