It is a lot easier to do that front bearing bracket with the thrust bearings removed, or at the very least, with the thrust bearing support removed. It is even easier still to do it all with the motor sitting on a cart on the ground.

It is a nice, well lit mechanical room with a lot of clearance and room to work without interference. The guys and gals at this site work very hard to keep everything in good order.
