I would not suggest replacing the bearing unless you have the tools and have done one before or have somebody that can help you.

SOURCE: pump is making grainding noise like bearing is

Before it gets damage, you must replace the worn out bearings. Shut the power supplying the pump off. Close all the valves (intake and discharge). Take the pump off from where it is installed and disassemble it to change the bearings, as well as the mechanical seal. Reassemble and reinstall to its location. Open the intake valve if there's any. Open and fill full with water the priming port, and have it closed thereafter.
Put the power and switch it on to run the pump. Then,
slowly open the discharge valve to desired level. Send
us your e-mail comments for us give further assistance if needed. God bless you.

Is it normal to hear a squeak from the number 4 cylinder rod bearing as I manually rotate engine crank? I have the front end and oil pan off.

make sure that the squeak is not from dry rings in the bore
put oil down the cylinder and rotate the crank
if it goes it could be just dry and need no further checks but if it is in a bearing then it is serious and needs replacing
turning a crank should produce a dry scraping noise as the pistons move up and down the bores but certainly not other noise

Pump or bearing problem?

If this is a top load maytag, the pump bearing sleeve will rub the pump pulley and make a grinding noise. Replace the pump.

My 97 hyundai accent i have change 2 back wheel bearing, But when i drive it i still hear funy noise coming from back wheels.What should i do?


My name is mike, I will try and help you out best I can with out of course seeing the car in person.

If you did your own wheel bearings or had them done, the noise could be from the packing of the bearing, might not have been packed right with proper grease, or the housing around inside where wheel bearing goes could be worn out. Now, before we go there, first have your breaks checked out, sometimes the noise comes from the rotors, as if break rotors are worn or warped will sound like a wheel bearing. Even if you pads are goods, rotors can be worn or warped and cause this same similar sound. If breaks and rotors check out ok, then wheel barring housing might need to be fixed, they have have sleeves they can put in housing to help this, with out have housing bored out or replaced. I hope this helps some. Best to have this checked out like at Les swab who deals with breaks and rotors and bearings. And they are knowledgeable . I hope this helps turn you to the right direction.

Lescha Hobby 125 S electric mixer requires new drum main bearing

I had a similar problem on a Lescha Hobby Mix 120 SF. (Sounds similar to yours) The failure seems to have been caused by corrosion of the ball bearings. If you get water into the rear bearing housing when it is operating, and then store the mixer with the opening in the drum downwards, the water collects around one of the bearings. The bearings are a standard size ball bearing with a 62mm outside dia, 30mm bore and 16mm wide. I bought the sealed version from a local bearing supplier (or look one up on the Internet). The original ones fitted are unsealed, which is part of the problem. I also bought two new bearing retaining external circlips for a 30mm shaft. I had a paint round inside the housing with hammerite, and drilled some 10mm dia drain holes around the outside of the housing near the bolting flange. I also store the mixer with the drum horizontal now.

1992 volvo 240 timing belt replacement

timimg belts usually don't make noise, they break and the motor stops!! The noise could be coming from a bad water pump, powersteering pump, air compresser, alternater, leaky exhaust, leaky vacume lines. Check them out. Or, I don't know the condition of the engin. Has it been neglected and are the bearing going? More history would be helpful.
