    It's pics like this that make me question trying to go from manufacturing these to service. Much easier to install bearings and shafts when the unit is new, only half assembled and sitting on the floor.

    The shaft was 5" diameter but hollow I'm sure, it was pretty heavy still. The blower cage looked the same, and it had zero fins on that wheel also, it was pretty messed up.

    Only half the bearing failed.



    Remove the 2 bolts, raise the shaft up & rotate bearing 180 degrees & replace the bolts.
    Voila!
    Another 5 years of service.

    I had to look at that twice before I realized that was the shaft that had worked it's way down through the base metal. Never seen one do that.

    I have a church with 50 year old Trane air handlers that wore the bearing through. Even though everything was working except the shaft and bearing they chose to replace the entire 1,000 pound air handler. Then they found out the ceiling below it was abestos so they had to spend a few thousand more on removal even before the old air handler could be lowered out of the ceiling for replacement.

    Flip the caster 180, stick in a new bearing, dimple the shaft a few thousand times to overcome loss of metal due to rubbing.....good to go.
