I did get the 2036757. Unfortunately, it did not come with the pulley. The hole in the body of the machine appears to only be large enough to allow the shaft of the motor to penetrate from inside to the outside. Attached to the outside part of the shaft is a small toothed pulley and some cylindrical piece between the pulley and the body of the machine. I didn't know if this cylindrical piece is just a spacer or maybe some sort of locking device for the pulley.
For some reason, when I posted my initial question, this site would not allow me to enter the 8920 as a valid model number. The Bissell site recognizes it, as well as the site from which I purchased the brush motor. Strange.
If you have any advice, it would truly be appreciated.

Brushes are switched on by lowering the handle which activates a micro-switch located inside the lower part of the machine. Vacuum must be running as well. The DC power for the brush motor comes from a Bridge rectifier located on the PC board located in the handle. I have drawings that might help you. firstname.lastname@example.org
This the number for the brush roll motor, 2036757, is it the one you got? I don't remember having to remove the pulley, I am thinking that the pulley is on the new motor. The 8920 is a good number? Where you on the Bissell site, or some other site.
Remove the bottom plate that covers the brush roll and remove the roller. The plate is removed by releasing two clips at the back corners of the plate on either side. Take the roller and install the belt around the pulley and put the other end of the belt through the access hole in the vacuum body. Replace the roller and turn it by haand to ensure that the belt is not pinched. Replace the bottom plate and turn the roller again (same reason).
If you look at the area beside the rear wheel between the hood and the main body, you will see a clip incorporated into the hood. Take a screwdriver and pry it away from the main body. Do this on both sides. You will find a similar clip at the hood just beside the back corner of the plate in the front where the plate clips are located. Pry these as well and hood will come loose. Now you can turn the machine back on its' wheels and remove the hood. You will see the belt where it comes through the main body and you can grab it with a couple of fingers and stretch it onto the motor shaft. Replace the hood and the job is done.
