What do I need to do to the bearing before I install in the housing?
After removing the plastic film that surrounds the bearings, simply wash them with a solvent and wipe dry with a clean lint free cloth. Make sure there is no debris on either the bearing steel back side or the bearing surface. King bearings are spayed with light oil during manufacturing to prevent any corrosion during storage and transportation. Do not attempt to use any abrasive material on the bearing surfaces. Overlays and lining materials are softer layers that can be damaged reducing their thickness. King bearings installation guidline
