Hi Opie, nice 60.
All good advice so far. Although I don't have any long term experience with the marlin seals.
I would recommend doing the bearings while you're in there.
There are some specific tools and supplies you'll need to make this job easy: factory service manual, parts washer, brass drifts, 54 mm socket, luggage or fish scale, lots of towels and brake cleaner, molybdenum grease for the birf, regular wheel bearing grease for the bearings.
If you buy the supplies and decide you don't want to jump in, pm me. I'm laid off right now and can do it for a lot less than a shop. Ive done it on 40's, 60's, minis,etc.
