    You can use a couple longer bolts or some all thread to compress the spring. But, since the belt is broken, you shouldn't have an issue just pulling the motor straight out. The belt is only an issue...

    I'm sure there's a better way, but I have used that type of fixture and just sharpened on the end as much as I could get without hitting the adjacent tooth and then relieved the whole center by hand...

    If I remember correctly, I removed the assembly as a unit from the housing and then removed the pin, which is straight, not tapered, but mine was a 13" SB.

    If it's only one single thread is there any chance you can repair it with a tapered file (carefully of course)? A single damaged thread being repaired shouldn't effect accuracy too much, if at all,...

    I've always used file cards. My favorite are the wooden ones with metal bristles on one side and nylon brush bristles on the other. I also use a pick to clean out the bigger boogers that the card...

    Does any tooling, vise, DRO, etc. come with it? These items can add up fast $$$. $1000 for a rusty, naked machine would be high priced in my area (western NY).

    Keep in mind that if you have the spindle in neutral the brake will not hold at all. It has to be in either Hi or Low range.

    Just a note,

    I don't have the answer for you, but I do have a question. Is it possible the bearing is designed to run dry so not to collect grinding dust if grease were added? How fast does it turn? How well is...

    I'm sure it depends on how much use it gets. I use my 13" SB fairly frequently and like to keep the oil up near the top of the oil cups. If it drops a little I add some. If I were to use mine...

    From the picture, it looks like your bearings are cast iron (part of the body)? If so, this is the case with WWII vintage machines. Most, both older and newer, have bronze bearings/inserts.
