Per Note: Original equipment bearings from Shopsmith all have standard or normal radial clearance. Most power tool bearing specifications fall into the standard range. If a bearing part number does not identify a radial clearance number it is normally considered to be a standard clearance.

Note: The control/idler shaft bearing is >>>> Water pump shaft...shaft and bearing are one and is not repairable by the average joe. Anyone found an aftermarket replacement? Also, the small bearing on the speed control sheave is pretty much not repairable as near as I can tell.
