They arrived the other day care of a Makita Service agent.
Despite me asking (and showing them how far I'd got) they offered no hints as to how to do it (obviously grumpy at the fact I wasn't going to pay them to do it for me).
The front bearing took a little thought and was removed using a gear puller.
I am stumped if I can work out how to remove the rear one!
shaft | v
+---+---+---+ | | | | <- rear bearing +---+---+---+ ====+===+==== <- washer XXXX| |XXXX XXXX| |XXXX <- commutator assembly XXXX| |XXXX
There's no gap between the bearing and the washer and certainly nothing else on the assembly I would rate strong enough to grab with the gear puller.
I can get a firm grasp on the bearing with a set of multi-grips and have tried tapping the shaft out with a steel rod (of slightly smaller diameter) without luck.
Any help would be appreciated!
