Freewheel ball bearings

2 posts in this topic

Hi all, i had my echo freewheel apart to clean and grease it but a few ball bearings fell out and i can't find them. Does it really matter? Most are still there and its working fine. Cheers

I've definitely lost a couple before and still ran it. Didn't mess things up too much, but in theory there could be a little more slop which would cause slightly faster wear and skipping/failure sooner. It might be too late, but tips I have learned are do freewheel work in a box (shoebox works great) and have a magnet there to catch them. If you have another freewheel that is dead you can steal from it, or the balls should be cheap at a hardware store (if you can go to one these days).
