Sorry, I meant Ball Bearing in this case, not Bottom Bracket.
I have a 1985 Bridgestone MB-1 that I'm reviving.
Yesterday I took the axles out/ apart and cleaned all of the parts.
I see a slight bit of pitting in the race (cone and cup) and the ball bearings themselves are also discoloured and slightly pitted.
I don't know if these are made by Shimano or not but most everything else on the bike is.
Are there kits available with cones, cups and bearings for front and rear that I can get?
Is it difficult to get the inner race (cup) portion free from the hub?
I also need some good cone spanners, any recommendations?
Is a lithium based grease ok to use here (like automotive wheel bearing grease)?
Thanks for any help you can provide.
