Default Re: Pillow Block Bearings Won't Spin

a similar setup was used on squirrel cage fans in home furnace fans.very common,usually lasted the life of the furnace if lubricated regularily.
a hardened shaft,stops to keep shaft from moving in and out and you may get some miles out of them.road grime will cause premature failure,though.

the pillow block bearings above are more suited to your application,and have set screws or eccentric locking collars to keep shaft in place.
