O-ring outer axle seals

You know the kind by Superior,Ten,ect for the D30.Would it be wise to smooth the axle where the o-ring rides. While a reasonably smooth surface-rust and crud does build up on the axle shaft.

The anal-retentive mechanic in me says to polish the area---What say ya,ll--

Thanks,

Re: O-ring outer axle seals

I did the same thing. Make sure you use some kind of silicone adhesive to attach them in the tubes or they'll spin with the shaft... I know this because the first set of them I got didn't come with instructions so I didn't do that... They didn't last long at all while spinning with the shaft.
