You are the man. I think it is lucky to get that bearing before tearing the gennie up too, good job on that. The gennie is basically built around that bearing. Any wobble and it rubs and tears up the wiring, which happened on mine.

Again, I bow down to your skills. I might get it done (but I doubt it) but it would take days not hours.

Good post woody,having a skid loader to get that gennie out was handy.
As Rick said,if we were there we would have helped you!
Don't forget to pour lacquer thinner on the wound first to disinfect before adding masking tape. Good job Woody!

Woody, you just saved $800 - $1,000 that Power-Tech estimated to do that job a while back.
