So i am in the early stages of this restoration for my Trojan 5210 and I have run into a few problems Here they are
1. I need to replace the front and back brass bushings in the front housing There is a bit of wobble in them but the BIGGER problem is that I noticed a hairline crack in the housing above the little hole I tried to get a good picture but my camera is not that good This crack is about 3/4 inch  in length . My questions are :
2 How hard  is it to remove both of those bushings? How do you do it?  If i remove them I fear I might do further damage to the crack. This just might be out of my scope of expertise
3 Where can I buy a motor mount screw i Am missing one see the last picture  I believe they are 8-32 x 3-1/4 inch
Any advice I would greatly appreciate and thanks

Cam

Cam,

The bearing is likely 2 piece and there are guys that have replaced them. They were made both solid and two piece. Jerry made me a matching set of threaded mounts. Will check if my original is 3.25” long

The hole on yours from front to rear is in a different position as mine. Should have a round shim to lock bearing in place.

Your crack is similar to the one I had in my rotor. In my case took a Dremel and cut a v-groove channel and then silver soldered it.

Hopefully soon will have specs on the switch. This is a shaded pole and you may be able to experiment with number of turns to design a choke that works.

I would advise against trying to tap out the bearings to replace them. There are guys in the club who are expert at that. Darryl Hudson comes to mind (Hudson Custom Machining). I have had good luck replacing GE pancake bearings. I have never replaced Emerson bearings. I have also blown out the back of a case trying to tap out a bearing that didn’t want to come out.

Yeah what said you said David is my biggest fear that the back of the case will get blown out I  am leaning to what Chris said about channeling a groove where  the crack is and weld it  but I want  to see if anybody else will come up with any other optionsThanks David

I wouldn’t worry about that crack. As long as the bearings are good and well seated, the crack won’t be an issue. Better to let the experts handle this. I blew out the back of a pancake case. Luckily I was able to get a replacement from Chad Baker (http://www.antiquefanparts.com) for short money. I have also destroyed a case trying to remove a stator from a Century that did not want to budge for love nor money! All learning experiences for me. Darryl Hudson is very reasonable and he’s a heckuva good guy too!
