Found it- The stainless bearing is a RCBD bearing (China), # S6004RS. I did get a spare for future use!
If the keys are that hard to remove what does it take to put the new one in?Those keys are almost pressed in and very tight. They can be removed through tapping and prying with punches or chisels, but be careful as to not damage the shaft. I had to replace the key on the input shaft on the trans in my 10591 when I had it apart for servicing. I trashed it after having to remove it to replace the input shaft bearings which were worn.
First, I used a file to smooth the edges of the key. (I had caused a few spurs on it from trying to use vise grips to pull it out.) Then, I just lined it back up with the slot in the crankshaft and used a large set of channel lock pliers to press it back into the slot.If the keys are that hard to remove what does it take to put the new one in?
