    At least you dont have to spend time getting the bearing off the shaft..

    New bearings, get the shaft repaired, new wheel, and that Trane should be good to go..

    Holy crap.

    Keeping in mind I'm resi:
    How in the heck did that tear through that metal plate!?!

    That must be one freaking huge wheel.
