    With bearings that size there is quite a possibility of getting a pocket of the cleaner trapped and I imagine they use a lot of cleaner on a bearing that size. With the cost of fitting and shutting down a power station for a repair they won't take chances. I'm surprised they don't use a water based cleaner with something that big.

    From our acetone supplier "put a few drops on piece of glass and allow it to evaporate then see if there is any residue" they claim there won't be but ours isn't a product contains acetone, it is just acetone, cheap as chips might i add. Santa is bringing another set of hybrid ceramics so will do a rather unscientific, spin test of new versus fairly new lighter fluid cleaned versus "acetone" in the same reel etc and let you all know how it goes.
    Cheers
