How in the world did you ‘warp’ the arbor?!? You must have really gone gorilla on it big time!

Do you have a lathe? Or know someone who does? You could put it between centers to see if there is actually any runout.

Cheers,

I tried using a 3 jaw pulley removal tool, which probably would have worked fine except the one I rented from auto zone had a bent rod. The bent rod caused the jaws to pull unevenly on the bearing, and the puller also caused the end of the arbor to mush down to where the bearing can’t even come off anymore.

-- Don't think outside the box. The box was never there.

You may not have ruined the arbor… I’d try filing down the mushrooming so you can get the bearing off and then test the arbor before ordering a new one. Another way to get the bearing off without a puller is to use a bench vice. Put the jaws of the vice just wide enough for the arbor but not the inner race of the bearing, so the arbor will hang free below. Then use a soft faced mallet, block of wood and a hammer, or whatever you happen to have handy, and drive the shaft down through the bearing. Needless to say, try not to mushroom it again :)

Only other place I’d suggest is the bay, but that is hit or miss most of the time.

Cheers,
Brad
