How do you replace the brushes inside the motor? I do not believe that you have to pry on the brass housings. Correct?
Correct. I removed the bearing so that you could take the plastic cap off. I cut the original copper braid going to the old brushes and slid the brushes out. I soldered the new copper braid to the stub of the old braid. See attached photo.
You need quite a small, fine bearing puller to get that bearing off. I bought the smallest one I could from my local tool shop then ground the ends of puller arms so I could get them behind the bearing. Before pulling the bearing, measure from the end of the shaft so you know where it needs to be when you put it back on.
