If the rider desires to try his own hand
at the Job he had better start at the nnln
bearing In the bottom bracket. As bcirlngs
and ball cups are now made In such a
vailety of r.tjlcs and adjustment. In no two

si-rewc'd a tun ; or two ; In others the small

agiln , In wheelmhaving the tue-plcce crank

of hijrkut bcariiM. the Idea Is , In cleansing ,
not to remove thelontlto bcailng If It can be
avoided , but to loossn the cones so that
when the n.flchlnci lies on lift side , .1 half
pint , or If neressiry , u pint , of keribene or
Celine can be Injected Into the bearings
irom a Hvrlngo or large oil can with spring
bottom , such na enginceis use. This will
geiit'ially bo suHlrlcut to force all grit and
dirt out of a bearing , and In a few moments
lie cavllj will dr > out , v.Ucu a few drops
of good lubricating oil may bo Injected and
the bearings tightened up agjln. The sime
taitlcs hliLiild bo followed In the case of the
wheel .i\ie and steeling head bearings , upper
and lowei , and , If the work Is done care
fully the machine should run as smoothly
as If it had been sent to a repair shop If
It does not , then the beorlugs have either
been budlj adjusted by the amateur , or the
I'alls 01 tones have toughened up , or , ma >
bo , thcie ib a ball or two broken. In such

move the beatings fiom the frame and make
requisite icnewals. Before taking out a
bciu Ing , unit as ball retainers aie used , a
large piece of thick cloth or llanncl should
bo spiead on the flooi underneath the bracket
to catch the ballb or other small parts ; and
it Is alwajs 'veil to count the balls as they
are temoved from each side , to that the
proper number will be put back again where
thev belong. There ought generally spe.ik-
Ing to be the same number each side , but
in somi- cases the .assemblers do not think
