ďGravelyĒ was an understatement. Hasnít been grease in here in a while. 13 balls per side. A dust cap that didnít want to come off. Quite a bit of wire brushing ahead. Not sure the outside (cone side) is salvageable. But once I get some rust off Iíll be able to see what the races look like. Any cleaning suggestions?

the inside doesnít look half bad. Still smooth and bare metal.

Dust cap did NOT want to pry off.

Metal flakes were falling out already.

13 each side

Cone. Might clean up. Suggestions?
