    Did the ebay bearings come with the inners?

    If they didn't, that could be why they are so cheap, you only get the outer race, where the all balls come with the inner bush.

    It may have cost a bit more, but at least you can fit, grease and forget now.

    Always use aftermarket bearings, never had any problems. Save a fortune.

    What tool did you use to tap the old ones out ???

    I used a 1 ton record vice and a couple of sockets. Came out easily after the initial crack to free them up.

    No mate, no sleeve with them. Bought the sleeve in a separate auction for £5. I've paid just under £15 in total for the bearings, sleeve and seals.

    That's a bargain.

    Get a good quality water proof grease in them, should last for ages.
