Im looking to se if anybody has changed over their newer 9600,10s,50s back to the old style wood blocks. If so what were you reasons and how do they act after the change. The reason Im asking is I took apart all the bearings on my 50 today and all of them had more dirt than grease in them. It has been sitting for a few months but I use heavy grease, and they get lubed every 10 hrs in the season. Obviously the seals dont seal and im wasting grease if the seals are only going to allow dirt to come in and contaminate. ANy thoughts fellas?
