    Loud Motor Bearings

    Anybody ever replaced the bearings in thier pump motor? My motor is just over a year old and it's already growling / squealing at me. I would like to know the bearing size before I tear into it so I can have the bearings with me already. Do any of you know of a website or something to tell me the size bearings that my motor has in it?

    Emerson Motor
    Cat. No. ESQ1152
    Model T55CXCJH-1343
    HP 1.5 SF 1.5 RPM 3450

    I know this motor is fairly cheap at around $225 and is probably considered a "throw-away"... But I'm trying to save all I can. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    It should be a 6302 but it's better to take it out and make sure.

    Oops, had a couple numbers inverted. Glad you got it back going and it's as it should be.
