I remember Dave's ordeal --
Guess I was hoping that the '90 model would have been improved already.
Have there been any reports of successfully replacing the bearings in
the lever arm??
You DON'T replace the bearings, you replace the complete arm/bearing
assembly. I've done it half a dozen times without any problem. If the
threads ARE damaged, you MAY not be able to use the damaged cover or if
you use it, it may fail unexpectedly.
I don't know what to tell you other than do the best you can and keep an
eye on it.
