Can't budge tub nut so soaking it in rust buster for night then try again and break apart if need be.

If it's that bad I would have just cut the nut off. Chances are you will need to install a new Mounting Stem Kit anyway if you pull it apart and it includes a new nut.

Yup, tub bearing was a little rusty ::)   atleast I didn't have to break the sleeve off it's not going anywhere.  May have found where the water came from too.
Thanks, for your help folks. O0

I must have done something wrong.  Just got a call back. 
It's making a squeling noise in transition at agitate and into spin; so I think when I checked the spin bearing I didn't put the cam for the pulley on right and I have brake problem's.
After putting the tub bearing in and new seal/stem it ran great but when I lifted the top in spin it took forever to stop (should have known).  This is a track record for me and really need to correct it.  I have worked on these darn things and have messed up the spacing for the cam before.  I have read the manual again and again...sometime's I get it right but most time's I don't. 1/4"- 3/8" after the brake ingages...just isn't connecting for me.  Anyone have a better way of explaining to me...apparantly my brain is not clicking on this and more than a little embarassed :embarassed: 
I will be going back tomorrow morning to make it right but could use a little help. :P

Turn the bottom pulley clockwise until it starts to grab, put the tab on the tranny shaft and let it loose. the bottom of the tab will be even with the edge of the pulley. By even it will be even with the high part of the ramp so to speak on the pulley. Hard to describe  when you don't even think about it you just do it after a while.

Thanks Guys,
Apparently whoever put the thing back together put the spin bearing on upside down...not sure who that could be but I am sure it will not be happening again ::)
