just noticed my needle bearing is almost stuck in the drum. it moves freely when on the crank, however there is more play than i think there should be.

If there was any doubt about the bearing I would replace it. They don't cost very much and it's good insurance. In case you have never put the shoes on one of those clutches I'll tell you the easiest way I've found to do it. Put two of the shoes on and put the clutch in a vice. Connect the spring together and put it on the two shoes. Lay the last shoe on top of the clutch and lay the spring in the grove. Now just pull the shoe that's on top until you can slide it on the clutch, make sure where the spring connects is between two of the shoes and not in the grove.

Got a new bearing on the way. Any idea on how to get the old one out.
