O.K. Bernie, I'll bite, how did you relubricate the bearings? (I lost the 
first at 160k,
the second at 200k and the third at 245k. I changed the last one at the same 
since I could not figure out how to grease it without removing the spindle 
from the hub.
Since I gave it to the machine shop to press made sense to give them 
a new
bearing to press in at the same time, and be done with all of them.)
