When you removed the seal, what was the condition of the race and ball bearings? What it still packed with grease or oil? thanks

I know a lack of lubrication is the final step to the death of the bearing. There seem to be a lot more engines with the "6204" bearing failing than the revised larger "6305". I suspect the covers used on the "6204" are not the same design/quality as the ones on the "6305".

It will destroy the seal. I'm in the process of developing a RMS seal tool for the DIYers, should be ready in a week or so.
