I was concerned about the salty sand we landed on in Baja corroding my wheels, so I rinsed them off and went flying, but one trip about the pattern didn’t get the water out of my nose wheel bearing, which rusted up and made interesting noises when I set it down and rolled out, but only when above 20 mph. Fortunately I could still read the part numbers on these parts and they or rather their equivalents are readily available on Amazon.com and any auto parts store. I got the cup and cone bearing for $13.54 including tax and replaced the cup using a borrowed bearing press.
