Replacement Parts: Bearing & Spindle Assembly.
The Rupes® 56.245S/C Bearing & Spindle Assembly is a 4-piece unit that includes a pair of bearings, a backing plate mounting spindle, and a c-clip.
This assembly is best installed by the Rupes Factory-Direct Repair Center (link), a machine shop, or a mechanic. That being said, is not impossible to replace the assembly using some very basic tools.
Typical tools needed to remove & replace the assembly include a Philips screwdriver, a heat gun, tool oil, bearing puller, a dowel punch & hammer, channel locks, a bench vise, and sockets that match the diameter of the bearing assembly (and a size larger).
