Permanent lube bearing

Greetings Alex,

If you've done this lube three times on the same car then chances are that you are just putting off the inevitable of bearing failure. I've done what you spoke about several times on a 123 chassis where the blower is easier to get to, but it's only a temp fix for motor replacement seeing as the bearing are sealed and can't be replaced. I did notice that the aftermarket motors do seem to have a high quality roller bearing setup, and they're even American made. Might try one of these and save yourself the time of relubing a dying horse.
