so recently i just cleaned a few of my bearings : yyj, yyf , CT, KK , and trifecta bearings in mineral spirits. i cleaned it like normal and normally they would turn out really great.
but today, since i was kind of dusty in my house, i decided to clean the bearings outside. the temperature is about 35-40 degrees. and i left the bearings in the mineral spirit for about 8 minutes outside.
now i dried them, and spun test them like i normally would. and now it seems like they are worse than before i cleaned them.
(please dont say anything about breaking it in. i’ve done this plenty of times.)
so i want to ask:
Does Heat or Cold affect the performance of bearings?
Does heat or cold affect mineral spirits?
