Why is my bearing making noise and what is brinelling, anyway?

This snippet is from Ogura's full length troubleshooting online video. In this 20 second video segment, we show where noise can come from in a bearing that has brinelled or has developed false brinelling.

Noise from bearings in the clutch or brake can be from brinneling, which is physical damage to the bearing races from excessive vibration or shock load.

False brinneling can occur if the bearing races have no relative movement for long periods of time and are subject to vibration.
