Last night I took apart the motor, the rotor was seized in the rear bearing - looks like someone tried to remove the bronze bearing with a screwdriver, etc and ruined it, these are pressed in - this is out of my experience.
#1 Are bearings available or can be fabricated?

#2 What does it take to press the bearing in the rear motor housing?

#3 Motor, etc was spray bombed, tips on removing it to reveal original japan (if it is OK)

This is the 16" version of the 1404 (1911) - - I think it weighs more than my 16" Gea-rback!! - - such nice brass, it has potential.

Hi Steven, Darryl can make a bearing and press the old one out.  Just get in touch with him. I think you’ll need to send the complete motor head to him, as he makes them custom and then fits them for proper clearance. 
On an R&M that’s japanned, lacquer thinner won’t harm the original paint but should easily remove the spray can paint.

Thanks - - the hole for the bearing doesn't even line up with the oil port, the rotor may have taken a hit in shipping, the box was round - - wrapped in 2 layers of bubble in a single weight box

Response from seller:
Extra precautions were made in shipping this item. Cage and brass blades were removed and packaged separately with added supports, ample bubbles, and sturdy box. The same precautions were taken on the motor and shipped separately with copious amount of bubbles and multiple layers of sturdy cardboard as verified in your pic.


"Copious amount . . " My A*&
