The front fan shaft bearing on my Model G has moved forward. Somehow the shaft still holds in place when running though - so far. So, where can I get replacement bearings and how does one go about replacing them? I know, the tech manual is ordered but not there yet, so would appreciate a little help in the meantime. The current bearings are barely thicker than the bracket that holds them and it would maybe appear that the bearings are held in place with a glued-on ring. Can that be? They look like white plastic. Someplace I read that these are normally ball bearings held in place with snap rings, but these sure don't look like that!

I was able to loosen the head bolts and move the front bearing support bracket forward a bit, then was able to move the front fan shaft bearing back on the shaft a bit, letting the bearing go into it's proper location, then I put a couple of "C" snap rings, 5/8" ID, over the shaft between the front bearing inner race and the fan hub. I think all is well.

Each of the bearings in the drawings seem to have snap rings on but one side. Mine seem to have a much larger OD snap ring of some sort on both sides of both bearing, but I see no typical snap ring split anyplace. What gives, how are the snap rings like mine put on? How are those bearings with but one snap ring held in place?
