Short story about that motor, it's about 6 years old, never cleaned it never oiled the bearings. Last year on vacation the shaft side bearing blew up. Not having a replacement I used a regular bearing with the outer edge wrapped in duct tape to make up the size difference. Dirty, wobbling shaft, screaming non high speed bearing, it worked. Ran another 8 packs through it out there with no heat issues. In fact it still working right now duct taped bearing n all.
Now, I'm an animal but not that much of an animal I'm actually looking for the replacement bearing so I can throw it in another build.
That motor was great to me, all those years and not a single issue what so ever.... Except it's an axle snapper
