Successful MP60 rebuild on my part now. There was an aluminum disc covering some screw heads on the back. Once that popped off I was able to get everything apart and it was very straightforward. I found a miniature bearing puller at work. I don't have a picture handy, but similar ones are less than $10 online, so use one of these and don't break your magnet.
6000z bearings front and back.

My cover didn't have the two screws that the one above did, so I ended up having to pry it out. It went back in with a solid snap.

I may need to get into my MP60s (five) that are failing on me after 3-4yrs. Any pictures you may add to this post will be greatly appreciated and thanks

I'll try to take a picture of the puller. Madehtsobi's pictures a few posts back do a nice job of showing the insides.

NP! Take pics n post up as well! Make sure u get a bearing press for the first time around!

I used a metal L shaped ruler from Harbor freight the second time around since it was "looser" to get the bearings off

Red/green is stall detected. I've only had that a few times, not on an MP60 I've rebuilt, and it always goes away on restart. I would clean the wet side and make sure it is free. Otherwise I wonder if your bearings are putting the motor in a slight bind. Does the dry side spin freely by hand?

Sorry for the long delay, I finally figured out what the puller at work is. It was sold as a battery terminal puller. Ours is a Blackhawk/Proto ET1071A, $25 online. The Lisle 54150 for $18 on Amazon (Prime too) looks like the same thing.

Hello guys!
My name is Benjamin and I'm living in Germany. I have a question to you, sorry if I do any mistakes :-)
I decided to replace the bearings of my MP10. I opened the dryside and saw finally two different kinds of bearings. Did anybody see this before? I only read about two same bearings inside. Thank you :-)

Good morning to all I need desperate for your help. When disassembling my 40 qd inside find a small one washer, but I can not understand its mounting position. I tried to run the pump without this but the noise and too much.When I dismounted the part was attached to the side of the magnet, , but I can not believe it is the right position, think that it is attached to them because of the magnet
Please, anybody can help me put my pump back into operation.
I apologize but I did not upload the photos., I hope somebody can understand my problem

Hard to tell from here and I've only done non QD 40's, but I suspect a bearing shim. Is it the same OD as one of the bearings? Flat, or wavy?

I know this is an old thread, but I'm hoping someone can help me out.
Can anyone post pics of the washers used in a mp40wqd and where they are supposed to be.
I knocked them out and not sure if I'm missing any or which one goes where.
Any help is appreciated.

If my time with machinery spindles has taught me anything it is that not all bearings are created equal, and that using ABEC ratings is fuzzy at best. Impostors exist as well.

I've done a couple Vortech pumps with cheap bearings and been happy, and a couple with cheap bearings and had your result. If I ever do another it'll be with one of the name brand ones.

I would also prefer metal shielded over rubber sealed for this application. They run cooler, and if you have salt creep that far in you have other problems.
