I know not everyone is of a mind to rebuild a pump motor, but I can do the work and the bearings were $17 at the local bearing house. That makes it pretty affordable in my book. It's a Sta-Rite above ground filter with AO Smith #48 frame, 1hp motor. I do have a question, however. I've put a puller on the end of the motor shaft to push the bearing out of the end plate and put as much pressure on it as I feel comfortable with but no luck. Peering between the fan and end plate there appears to be a bearing retainer that's fastened with a small screw through the end plate. Is that the case, and if so how do you get the thing back in place once it's removed? Oh, I'm also soaking the shaft overnight with some penetrant to make sure it isn't just stuck.
