    Re: 3200 rebuild

    Thanks Dave, I've already spoken to them, and they recommended I bring the bearings in, and frankly I agree with that line of thinking. No point ordering the wrong ones 3-4 times.

    The reason is there is no set part number for the bearings, and since they have to be an exact fit, it's kinda pointless to guess at it.

    Motion Canada used to have an office just down the street from my workplace, but recently moved to an inaccessible location.

      Steve, maybe you can help on this. I saw on your build thread that you should not re-use the woodruff key. Why not? Where do you get a new one?

        i dont reuse woodruff keys because it was suggested to change them was just a good habit, same with regular straight keystock

        i have a selection of them in a parts bin, got them from motion canada

          If the key isn't deformed at all there's no reason not to reuse the key. Woodruff keys can be a pain to remove so it wouldn't be surprising if you damaged it getting it out.

            the woodruff key HAS to be removed to get the bearing off, and as j says, they can be tough, vice grips and a rocking motion gets them out

            princess auto has a variety pack, but quality is poor. they are typically too tight or too loose

            so i got a variety of suitable sizes from mc

              Oh, okay. This one came out without too much trouble, so guess it's good to re-use.

              Another weird thing I came across...big washer that I think is aluminum, deformed when I tried to bend it back into shape (didn't realize how soft it was). Came off the arbour. Steve, did yours have that? What's the purpose of a soft metal washer?

                Re: 3200 rebuild

                which end of the arbour?

                the fixed blade washer on the 3200 is brass for some reason, then the other blade washer is steel

                a big aluminum washer? where was it?

                  It was between the bearing and brass blade washer (I think...).

                    hmmmmm, between the bearing and brass washer?.....

                    no reason for a washer there, the bearing sits on its own shouldered "gland" 17mm then the brass washer sits against its own 5/8 gland, and the blade washer should be snug against the bearing inner race, so no need for a washer inbetween

                    imho, go without it. its not shown on the parts diagram and isnt present on either of my my 3200's

                      I got bearings for mine at Princess Auto in Ottawa.
                      They are standard 40m OD, 17mm ID, 12 mm Deep.
