Okay guys, the bearings on my swamp cooler fan are going. They're spitting grease into the hallway and squealing, anyone know anyone? For the next couple of weeks I'm not really in a spot where I can tackle this type of project, somebody has to know a guy that knows a guy. Thank in advance.

Yes but I'm leaving in the morning. Generally the bearing are easy to swap. The slide over the shaft, it's about an hr job pulling the old one, running to HD to get new ones and putting them back

Thanks!! Hopefully it doesn't trash the fan. I'll turn it off tonight but it has to run tomorrow. I have pulley pullers and stuff, shouldn't be too hard. Been looking at youtube vids, I got it!!

If you're done with my axle/diff book I'm gonna need it soon. No hurry, just help me remember.

FYI, there's an offroad car show on Aug 3rd in Los Lunas if anyone is interested. To promote the county expo the following weekend I believe.
