Install The Bearings On The Shaft

This task is perhaps the most difficult of the entire process. The bearings need to be pressed onto the shaft and it's a very tight fit.

I used an old trick I taught to me years ago for doing just this sort of thing. I simply heated the bearings, in the toaster over (my wife doesn't know I cook bearings..), to 200F. At the same time I had the shaft in the freezer.

This is a great site ..I refer to it often. On the rebuild of the sea water mentioned a rebuild kit for $150....where and what is the part number.I have a universal M3-20 that I need to rebuild the pump on.
