I know this should be in Shoppers Square but since these are a hard to come by and sought after item, I managed to pick one up today from a guy who was selling off his appliance business. Anyways, this means I have two now so if anyone wants to buy these OR maybe start a reciprocal rental thing, we can. Hopefully this will help someone out!

I also got ahold of a NIB 2 port pump and 4 port pump. Are the 4 ports rare?

Whirlpool bearing installer and remover

The bearing installer is a must have tool although this one is missing the Arm that keeps the tool from turning as you use it.

The bearing removers are about useless, after doing more than 500 rebuilds I gave up on the remover after just a few uses, it is easier to just pound the old bearings with a heavy mallet and an. Old WP agitator shaft.

The other bearing installer I have doesn't have the jam rod either, but if you use a long enough vise-grip it does the same thing.

I remember using those things. I'd do the "shake test" out in the parking lot as a preliminary to see if the spin tube bearings were shot. It would have to be an awfully nice machine for me to go to all that work. I rarely replaced the lower bearing. And if I was tired of working on the washer I would sometimes pound the top bearing in with a bad! Sometimes I can't recall my phone number, but I can still remember the little FSP box those bearings came in with the part wrapped in some sort of oiled parchment-like paper.

I'm interested

I have a few belt drives I'd like to keep going and large stockpile of parts. Been looking for this for awhile. If noone else wants it email me:

Bearing Puller

I loved my bearing puller, I wore out two of them.It was fun to use and made removing the bearings so much easier.I recently got a new one the last one in the country I think.
