Oh before I take it apart, do any of you happen to know the number of balls meant to be inside? The blocks measure about 61mm x 47mm.

Okay I took the worst sounding bearing apart, cleaned and re-assembled. Thanks for the help Jazz.
Sadly it seems just the same! I couldn't see any damage to the plates. Interestingly these bearings have no plastic tubes, see the image.
That said, it probably is to do with the plates as they quiet down with some weight on them, presumably pressing the balls onto the main body and keeping them off the plate edge.

So how many balls ? and did you compare that bearing with one of the other quieter ones ?
Regards the weight making them quite down then again thats not unusal and they will move more freely also and take that notchy feel away.!
Honestly I wouldn't worry about it put them back together and use.!

Well.. if you want to count the balls they are in that picture! I know it had the correct number because there were an equal number in each track and the gap between them was the same as the other smoother running bearing.
I'm not that worried now I know there is nothing clearly wrong. I'll get to using them.
Even if they are worn they will still be miles better than the cheap round rail bearings unless completely knackerd which they don't look or sound to me.
