I have a G1022 TS that I am rehabilitating and looking through the manual I found I do not see a bearing size for the motor. On these risky saws are the bearings in the arbor usually the same size and what is in the motor?

From some videos I have watched the bearings I got for the arbor seem to be the same size as what goes in these induction motors

Pull the bearings before ordering. It’s the only way to make sure.

Yank them, check the nomenclature on the side of them, and take some measurements to make sure it is what it says it is… then give Lynne a call over at Accurate and she will hook you up ;)

Ok darn I was hoping they were most likely all the same size so I can order a batch of them. But I need to take that motor apart anyways.

How difficult is it to re-wire the motor? I am keeping it the same voltage but the cord and the connector/switch just don’t seem up to par.

Replacing wire is trivial. Just make sure the new wire connects to the same places as the old wire, and is the same gauge or bigger. Pictures before you start ripping stuff apart helps a great deal and can save your bacon if you forget where everything goes.
