    New pump bearings tight?

    I put my 15/20 into my spare Skat triple bearing pump and was going to swap pumps Friday for some testing, but noticed that the shaft in the brand new pump does not spin as easily as my well-used triple bearing pump (75++ hours). I thought this was just due to it being brand new and that it will loosen up after a bit of running ... anyone else experience this, agree/disagree? Its not super tight, just definitely tighter than my used pump.

    After PPG installed new bearings in my pump, I noticed the same thing. I've noticed no ill effects...
