I know Novak has some sort of special sealed input-shaft bearing for the T90 that supposedly doesn't leak like the felt seal but they don't sell one for the T86. Has anyone done the research to see if such a thing might exist as a standard part or perhaps a 2-sealed bearing and I could peel out the inner seal. With sitting exposed for so long (27 years), the bearings feel chunky so I'm going to replace them and get a small-parts kit while I'm replacing second gear. Are there really better and worse bearings for this application or are they all about the same so should I just go buy some based on price? I was even willing to pay the extra cost premium to buy the stuff from Novak since I was buying their fancy countershaft but they didn't do a full parts kit, etc. anymore. I'm also wondering about the popular wisdom on seals of late... do I use the seals dry, put a thin coat of something one them, or ditch the gaskets and just use Motoseal Black like modern cars?
