Rebuilding the bearing pot was enjoyable, but it took ages to get the components together and how they aligned. This is the clean up section. One problem was because the seals were so badly mangled it was difficult to ensure which way they went in.

However a picture was located miraculously which displayed the layout and is displayed at the end of these pictures.
