    I'd like to repair the motor in my Toro 51592 blower. The bronze bearing opposite the impeller is worn out. Any chance of finding that bearing with the housing or a new (used) motor? IMG_7388.JPG IMG_7390.JPG

    You may have to take the housing apart and try and find a sintered bronze bearing to match, if you have a bearing supply Co in your area they may have a selection.

    They will be a self-centreing bearing and moulded or pressed into the rear bearing housing.

    We used to replace these in the Hoover constellation vacuum motors but these days, I doubt it.

    Usually by the time one realises the bearing is shot, so is the armature from poling.

    That being said is such a powerful tool to offer a rugged metal impeller and an infinite variable speed motor! I guess a leaf blower is nevertheless powerless without such motor.

    Have you tried a garden tool repair/supply supply store?
    I've been pretty lucky with the one in my area.

    I could not find the bronze bearings or even a new motor. I purchased the nearest sized sealed ball bearing and went to work milling out the aluminum housing on my drill press to accept the bearing and a little hand polishing of the shaft for the ID fit. If I had to pay for the labor it wouldn't be worth it but I now have a brand new working blower. Shame on TORO for absolutely no useful parts support.

    Nice job. Pity the motor wasn't fitted originally with ball bearings.
