Re: Need opinions on bearings
Those bearings look fine from here.
I think I would get with a good machinist and start over, re checking everything. Something seems odd, like maybe an issue outside of bearings or clearances within the motor.
Do you recall what the clearances where? No idea?
Too bad, but it could be worse, nothing looks not fixable at this point. It should be 100% re checked in my opinion, start over. At least you have parts that appear to be in good shape.
