What do i do if they get wet, i race on asphalt in England - its going to get wet!
Well that I have never had happen but if it was me I would more than likely take them all out of my car and wipe the outside off with a rag. Then I would after I cleaned the outside of them off let them soak in some WD 40 or something similiar. I still hate to do that but water may make them rust or loose the factory grease.
I never spray bearings and blow them out. We then finally get crunchy I just replace the bad ones.
I had a huge motor builder from the 80's and early 90's never to spray out motor bearings and for the most part they will never go bad to often. Well he was right as it never happened to me.
I find that when you spray them out they get dirt inside the bearing and get rough feeling. I leave the factory grease in them as it will loosen up in a few runs.
