You have to take the 4 little screws off of the upright first. Then you will see a retainer clip. Pop the clip off and it will all make sence from there. I put ceramics in and left the seals off. It will be dialed. Also, there's a hole in the hub you have to put a allen wrench in to hold while you unscrew the thumb screw. Tough to explain, but you will see the hole.

It's been a while since I did it, but I think that was it.

So the hole is on the top of the hub and the thumb screw is on the back and you use it to spin the shaft?

The bearings that come with most balancers are junk. Go to amain and get some ceramics. TKO have some decent price ones on there.

Or atleast that is what I did and it helped.

Correct! I tried pulling the seals off the bearings, but they still were not as free as the TKO ceramics w/o seals.
