So, the new centerpost bearings and seals are in. I can't imagine doing this job without the proper tools. The bearing puller and bearing installer made the job go smoothly. The seals and bearing coated in turbine oil (hydraulic oil). The bottom top seal cavity filled with approximately 1/8 teaspoon of turbine oil and the upper top seal cavity packed with grease. The new basket drive is in. New T-bearing. Everything received a good cleaning. Applied grease to the wig wag guides. I applied POR15 to the underside and center tube of the basket (sanded away rust (there wasn't much rust) and roughed up the surface, washed with soap and water, degreased with industrial degreaser, metal prepped with POR15 metal prep, and applied POR15, three coats). The tub received another two coatings of POR15 around the rim using the same method. New belt installed. I also applied 100% silicone around the top edge of the tub just to make sure that there is a good barrier to prevent future rust.

Now I am letting the POR15 cure for another two days and then I will finish the re-assembly and test her out. I'll update when she's up and running.
