How should I clean my acer bearings?
I race outside in parking lots, so crap gets into my bearings, its to the point now where there is crap all along the edges between the plastic shield and the steel housing and I want to clean out my bearings.
I have a jewlery cleaner thingy and want to use it on my bearings, however, I am thinking:
1. should i take off the plastic shielding from both sides of the bearings?
2. should I take off the plastic shielding from one side?
3. should i not take off the plastic shieldings?
when I dump my bearings into my jewlery cleaner.
I tried using the "bearing cleaner" made by RPM that I bought on the acerracing website but it has proved to be pretty ineffective against the amount of dirt and rocks that I am currently getting stuck in my bearings.
Also, if I should take off the plastic shielding, does anyone have any sites w/ some pictorial instructions on how to remove the plastic shielding from these acer (polyamide (pardon the spelling if it is incorrect)) bearing covers?
THis is my first time with ceramics and I am afraid to bust the covers.
Thanks everyone for helping me out.
