Re: OI 41 Drive Trane Growling

I hold my finger to the outer casing of the "intermittent" bearing after running for an hour or so and find it mildly uncomfortably hot, but not painful. This has been my long term standard for acceptable performance. I don't know if this holds up to evaluation of others with more mechanical knowledge, but with this and keeping it greased I've been doing well. Take care and joy, Aythya crew
