Crawl back into your hole you blackberry using, moron.


For Posterity:

The brushes pull out of the bottom of the brass sleeve when you trim the copper shunt. When installing the new brush, thread the copper shunt through the bottom of the brass channel and through the first two coils of the spring. Illustrated well here in this video:

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.
