with a round noise digrinder grinder smoother it out.. I then got new

TB-4 thrust bearings is to not grease or oil them ... run them dry. So
now we have a conundrum. I have run mine dry from the beginning as
advised. But I am beginning to lean towards lubrication. But
sparingly. A light application of a light oil or light grease
(snowmobile) might be the answer.
No conundrum. The Rohn TB's should not be greased. The grease just attracts
and hangs onto particulates and other junk and will accelerate wear.
