Just took the cover off my Saginaw 3 speed, found the cage off the front bearing, in pieces, stuck to the magnet in the bottom of the case. Sure glad that magnet is there!! What is involved in changing that front bearing? I took the front retainer off and there is a big circlip around the shaft and a bigger one around the bearing. Everything else I can see looks good. Thanks, John

no special tools we just replaced the bearings in ours in about two hours. never been in one before either. be careful and align all parts as they came off and all should go well. we white dotted everypiece before pulling it to get it right. that way if a dot wasn't showin during reassembly, we could see it and correct it.
