Reg Price: $109.45
In stock:
The 2020M-17 front motor bearing is used in the motor housings of Lionel's early horizontally mounted motors such as the 2020M-1, 726M-1 and 726M-41 motors as well as later slant mounted motors such as the 671M-1, 681-100 and 2332M-1 motors. It is the bearing located at the end of the motor housing where the armature shaft protrudes out of the motor housing. Original bearings such as these are made of Oilite® bearing material, a powdered bronze formed under pressure and impregnated with oil. These bearings should be installed using a press, as tapping them in with a hammer could fracture the bearing causing it to fail. Never use grease around these bearing types as grease will block the pores of the Oilite® material. Many parts dealers try and substitute machined brass rod for these bearings as it is cheaper, and while they will work, they need contant oiling as brass has no pores to trap and hold the oil.
