I have no empirical data, [yet] but putting thinner grease in my rear wheel bearings,feels like there is less drag now than before.
Could just be that the seat of my pants got lighter though.
Once i get the engine back to peak, I'll run over and get some extra bearings and run some a,b,a,b, tests.
maybe test with power unit out? hmmmm the wheels are turnin.
definitely easier to pull up & down the street. Hmmmmmmm.
More "crazy old man stuff again"

Where do I find one of those pull scales? Hmmmmm.

I sure am glad my wife LOVEs me.

When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour. That's relativity.
