oh yeah, new bearings for sure. Heres the draft plan
Get 34mm speedisleeve and a tube of ultra grey
assemble new bearing onto axle
assemble bearing retainer onto axle -- using 1 1/2 inch ID iron pipe driver
machine up a tight fit collar for speedisleeve and use that to drive it down into position, with ultra gray adhesive

Sound reasonable? Since the gap between axle OD and speedi ID is pretty small, flexible adhesive like ultragray should be fine (theres only radial slip load and its tiny I expect)

seem OK?
