From reading multiple posts on this forum, I've determined that i need to replace what the post called my "upper conrad bearings". I got the bearings the forum member recommended. My big problem is that I don't know where they are located on the motor. The motor is dead so I was going to just tear it down until I found the problem. I've since decided that is a stupid approach. Can any of you tell me where on the motor these upper conrad bearings are and the proper names of any other bearings I might find once I get into it? Thanks.
