Re: 500-series fan motor disassembly.

Thank you, Shaun.

OK, press-fit retainers; it seems I was missing the correct English terms.

I'm missing the recommended mechanical tools and technique to properly
dis-assembly it.
Mounting can probably be performed well with a soft plastic hammer.


Perhaps clean up assembly, check the shaft/bushing fit and go from there.
If I understand correctly, you are suggesting to avoid dis-assemble it.
From a preliminary inspection, I don't think it's an option in my case.
Search the archive for Stan Griffiths' posts, mentioning good reasons to
completely disassemble it.

Sebastian.

Sebastian,

Yes, I see the issue now. Your motor has cast endbells and press fit
retainers. One issue I have found with press fit assemblies is even
granting you can disassemble them without apparent damage, they often do
not reassemble properly.
