Ok a week or 2 ago my pump motor got loud and then died. I have a 1,500gph cartridge filter to use as a backup but its a lot weaker than the 1,600 pump so yesterday I tore the 1,600 pump apart and my first thought was bent shaft, but then I noticed the shaft was fine. So I used some carb and choke cleaner and cleaned the motor up. It works fine for now but I need to replace the bearings.
I could tear it down and measure them but I'm hoping someone on here can give me the correct bearing size? I'm sure I can safely replace them.
I wonder if the 1,500 bearings would work? I plan on selling the 1,500 so I don't want to tear it apart for nothing.
