Paul... I've been told Ed Morad has batches of rotors from time to time. Many swap rotors for better coating or bad rotor plate bearings.

Maybe you'll get lucky searching the boneyards.

I've packed it away in the garage attic for now. It can wait.

So you guys don't recommend cleaning out the SC? Or just don't clean the rotors? I've got my M62 appart to change the coupler and it'* FULL of black tar/gunk everywhere. I'd like this SC to be good for a while; what things should I check/clean/lube while I'm in there?

Open? Replace the needle bearings. Don't clean anything else. It'* pointless.

Do NOT reassemble that SC without replacing those needle bearings and replacing the two bearings in the nosedrive.

Where would I buy the bearings? Do the M90 parts ZZP and other sell work? Thanks for your help guys.
