Thanks guys, I think I’ll take it to a shop tomorrow and ask for their opinion. The guy who answered the phone said he’ll do a free inspection but if it needs repairs it could be close to $100 for bearings and labor. Not as bad as a new motor but still pretty high. Thing is, I’m sure I could put some new bearings in, I just don’t know if the other sound I’m hearing is normal.

My only other concern is the run-out of the pulley and fan. Have you guys checked the motor pulley run-out? I’m wondering if this much is normal? I might stop by Harbor Freight tomorrow and pick up a cheap dial indicator if the motor tech isn’t sure, but I’m still not sure how much I should be looking for.
