You mean this lathe?

Looking at exploded parts list, How did you change belt without exposing the main shaft and bearings?

Once the shaft is separated from housing, bearings are simple matter to remove with bearing splitter/puller, and install with some PVC or copper pipe that slips over the shaft. If you need video support for changing bearings, search for bearing replacement on a induction motor. The lathe shaft would be similar, once you remove any retaining rings or set screws. If set screws have left marks on shaft, use a file to clean up the shaft so bearing can push past with interference.

Best Luck.
