Jess, I hope you don't mind me hijacking your thread.
I took the stock bearings out of my 7500C3CT a couple of nights ago. I put the bearings in lighter fluid that I had poured inside a film case. After shaking the case, I found little black flecks floating in the lighter fluid. I repeated this process about five times, and each time I had those same little black flecks.
I took the bearings out and spun them on a very tiny screwdriver. The bearing that looked rusted would ride up the screwdriver. The bearing that looked OK would not.
Is this common? Why would one bearing ride up the screwdriver when spun and the other wouldn't?
I guess it's time to get some new bearings.
