Re: How often do I need to replace my cutlass bearing?

I just replaced mine. The sound of a bad bearing is kind of like a drumming - if you here that it is past time. I had about 50 thousandths inch play in it. I would guess that it should be changed any time there is play. I suspect once the play starts it will wear quite quickly. System is much smoother now.
