    That's an idea. Hopefully it won't be necessary.I stopped by a small motor repair place. The
    old-school kind with motors and junk laying all over the place. The guy pulled out a parts bin
    filled with ...

    Something like that. They preload the rear bearing. And let me tell you, the motor sure makes a
    racket without them. Today I went to Napa, Tractor Supply Co., Home Depot, Ace, and a small
    motor repair...

    Hmmm, so they're called wave spring washers. I'll see if I can source some locally. That
    website has a minumum order of $100.

    Well I got the motor disassembled and it may not be the bearings after all. At the end of the
    shaft are a couple of thin wavy washers. One of them was broken into 3 pieces. Could that cause
    a loud kno...

    Thanks Wyr & Neal. That makes sense. I loosened the inner set screw and was able to remove the
    pulley with a standard 3-jaw puller. Now to keep tearing into it until I get to those bearings.

    Model # 020871440You know, looking at this some more, maybe there is a threaded size adapter
    that is pressed onto the shaft? If so then the whole assembly should come off with a standard
    pulley remova...

    Here you go. Each half of the pulley has its own set screw (the inner one is not visible in the
    picture but it's there). There are a couple threads visible at the end of the shaft so I'm
    pretty sure t...

    The motor on my swamp cooler needs new bearings. Now I've disassembled small motors before, but
    this one has a 2-piece pulley that appears to be threaded on instead of pressed.What is the
    trick to get...

  • Posted in thread: Voltage reduction? on 05-15-2015 at 08:11 AM
    Since that last electrician located the break I did consider just repairing the break. But
    who's to say there isn't damage to the other cables as well? I have reason to believe the
    workmanship on the ...
