My front right wheel was roaring over 55 mph. When spinning the wheel by hand it made a purring sound. I pulled it apart. The inner bearing looked normal. The outer bearing was rusty (grease had turned brown) and the rollers & inner surface were all chewed up looking.
The outer race was rusty. I beat out the races from the rotor. It burred the inside of the rotor, so I ground down the burrs I made with a die grinder. Is this OK to do?
When I cleaned the grease off the spindle, it has a bunch of marks on it like the inside of the bearings were rotating on it. Should I replace the spindle? The bearings were only $15, so I'm not concerned about destroying a set of bearings.
