Started replacing bearings that were making lots of noise. Took motor apart and found heavy corrosion of the front motor bell casting which makes re-use of this part problematic (there is a rubber washer retained by a steel washer [rusted to almost nothing] which would have to be replaced). The part number is 680601-001 from marking on inside. Is there a possibility of buying/finding a replacement? I have looked all over and cannot even find a parts breakdown for the motor let alone the part.
Quick before the garbage man comes!
