CustomerJohn from Rockport TX

Planetary drive shaft broke in two.

The old planetary unit dropped out when it broke leaving the upper part of the broken shaft and beveled gear in the motor housing. Removed label band and upper motor housing with phillips screwdriver. Removed beveled gear housing with phillips screwdriver and pulled out broken shaft. Used snap ring pliers to remove gear retaining ring and slid gear off broken shaft and pressed out retaining pin below gear. Put seal and o-ring on new shaft and inserted new planetary unit up into bearings and reinstalled pin and snap ring. Greased top end of shaft and reassembled gear housing and motor housing. The unit works better than before as the upper part of old shaft had never been greased. The new drive shaft is much stronger than the original which had a deep groove cut around it which weakened the shaft where it broke in two.
