I am very lucky
north central florida...I spied a tire place and the Scythian needed some new tires.
We gave the tire a wiggle and the whole wheel moved while bolted to the axel. What does this mean ??? The mighty Scythian needs new bearings.. six inner and outer and new seals. We have taken care of this casa with wheels, we cleaned and repacked them every year! with love. The bearings were done.. Twenty years is a long time to be packed and repacked..
I am lucky this played out like this, not while I was driving and burning a spindle in the process.. I am waiting waiting waiting for one more seal. It is one pm . I still have to set up my rigging!
I decided the mechanic who did the work had a blogworth tattoo
