I liked the answer I got somewhere else and thanked that person for their
assistance and I thank you for yours. Do you know if the "hydrolic" resistance
on the axle should differ at all from what it is before the tightening process?
Can you quantify that say on a 1-10 scale with 1 being the resistance before
installation. I haven't replaced one of these before so I would find this info
very helpful. Also if the resistance where such that I could feel the bearings
rotating through the axle somewhat, what might the likelyhood be that I would
damage the unit. The unit spins real smooth with the cranks on but I was wondering if that can be misleading.
Again, Thank you for your help!
