Fault Find

Check to see if your Vire has noisy bearings: with the engine off, and in neutral pref with the plug out-, rotate the flywheel pulley by hand where you will feel through your hand and hear the rumbling main bearings.

Rumbling bearings are a risk!

Apart from the excessive vibration and noise they are prone to seize especially during the unused periods in the winter. Sod's law says they will most likely seize when it is most inconvenient - i.e. at the start of the season, when you need the boat ready.

There is only one size bearing.

Alternative Upgrade 

If you prefer the uprated stainless bearings (reccommended for replacing bearings that have rusted) see my other items. 

Get rid of that risky rumbling and do the job once and for always ....
