Removed bolt holding eccentric to shaft but will not slide out.What tool do I use to put between eccentric and bearing to pry it out since the tie rod folks are too large.Can a small puller be used?The pullers I have are too large.Any tool numbers?Can I use a torch
No on the torch, it might warp the shaft. The use of an arbor press us highly advised

Your compressor is made by Porter Cable. You can use sears parts or takes your old parts to a local Dewalt service center and they will match them up with replacements. You can save some money on the bearing by using a generic. Universal bearing number will be found on the dust shield. Most likely the sears part numbers will be the same as porter cable. Dewalt service center will help you with other questions and or instructions. Good Luck!

Your unit was most likely made by Porter Cable and parts may be matched at your nearest Dewalt parts center. The best way to remove the bearing is to use a press, however the fast/dirty method is to use a Dremel with a thin cutting wheel to remove the bearing from the shaft. Remove the head of compressor being carefull not to tear gaskets. Loosen screw holding rod to bearing and remove rod (note position). Make two cuts on outer bearing shell and remove shell. Make one cut on inner race, then expand slightly with blade of screwdriver and remove. Use generic bearing 6203 available at auto parts. Clean shaft with fine sandpaper and install bearing to noted position. Probably a good time to replace cylinder and ring. Usually part Dewalt / Porter cable part #k-650 or use Sears part. After assembly turn several times by hand checking for alignent and free movement. Be carefull with the fan, easy to break. You probably should order a spare blade. Good luck with your repair and post again if you have questions.

Should be 2 long bolts each side of the cylinder, remove them and lift the cylinder straight up gently until the piston is out of the cylinder then the rod/piston should slide forward off the crankshaft and lift right out. DO NOT over tighten the cylinder bolts when reassembling!

Tap the bolt of the puller while you tighten it, spay some penetrating oil on the shaft and leave it for a while and try again. If that is unsuccessful, apply a little heat to the flywheel and try the above again.
