I have a craftsman 113.298761 I am restoring and wanted to replace the arbor bearing since I had it taken apart. Didn’t have much luck getting one of the bearings off and managed to warp the end of the arbor. I am worried it could cause some wobble once I get it back together, and I don’t want to have to risk having to take it back apart again. Unfortunately the replacement from sears is a bit steep, so while I hawk over craigslist and ebay for the next few weeks, I figured I’d post here.

If anyone has some extra parts laying around and one of them happens to be an arbor, shoot me a message and a price please.

How in the world did you ‘warp’ the arbor?!? You must have really gone gorilla on it big time!

Do you have a lathe? Or know someone who does? You could put it between centers to see if there is actually any runout.

Cheers,
Brad

I tried using a 3 jaw pulley removal tool, which probably would have worked fine except the one I rented from auto zone had a bent rod. The bent rod caused the jaws to pull unevenly on the bearing, and the puller also caused the end of the arbor to mush down to where the bearing can’t even come off anymore.

You may not have ruined the arbor… I’d try filing down the mushrooming so you can get the bearing off and then test the arbor before ordering a new one. Another way to get the bearing off without a puller is to use a bench vice. Put the jaws of the vice just wide enough for the arbor but not the inner race of the bearing, so the arbor will hang free below. Then use a soft faced mallet, block of wood and a hammer, or whatever you happen to have handy, and drive the shaft down through the bearing. Needless to say, try not to mushroom it again :)

Only other place I’d suggest is the bay, but that is hit or miss most of the time.

Cheers,
Brad
