Default Re: Do you polish your balls?

I’m waiting at an airport and don’t have access to what I need, but there’s a recommended value for maximum wear/out-of-round. Check with a cheap micrometer or caliper. If you’re beyond that value, polishing won’t likely help much. If you had a ridge, you’re probably beyond that max wear value. I had maybe one ball that was good and I chose to replace the others using A&L. The new ones looked great. I personally think all the binding is in the box design. I have a ‘32 with all the same tie rod end design as an A, but it steers a lot easier. Seems that folks choose to go with replacing the box with a early ‘50s F-1 box and love the results. Good luck
