Need a bearing kit for Neptune (and the puller)

(1/1)

twmattox:
I have the Neptune washer (MAH4000AWW) and the bearings have been going out for a while.  I am now in a position I can work on it and get it running well again.  I had a contact for a person to rent me the bearing puller, and sell me the bearings, wax motor, belts, and isolator kit.  However, he is no longer returning email or voicemail (glad I didn't send him the money).  Anyone on here recommend a place to rent/purchase these items???

Neptune Bearing Repair - Pic Tutorial by crystal368

twmattox:
Thanks for the links...  This may sound funny, but I would just rather rent the tool (finding the time for me to repair the bearing has been difficult enough).  If I have to make a tool first, I know I will just procrastinate even longer...

I just used a 1/2" drive socket extension and put a socket that fit snugly thru the front bearing center hole and knocked out the rear bearing with a small sledge hammer. Then I used a scrap piece of 1 1/4 iron pipe with a pipe cap threaded on the end to knock out the front bearing. Clean up the hub with round wire wheel on a drill real good and the shaft and spacer. Then put rear bearing in first with a brass punch hitting only the outer race of the new bearing until its in all the way then put snap ring back on. I put spacer back in and held it centered with the same socket and extension but inserted it from the rear. Then drive in the front bearing with brass punch checking the spacer is centered before you fully seat front bearing.
