Note that the valve plate has four (4) tapered slots, two
(2) at the top and two (2) at the bottom. These four (4)
slots identify it as a motor valve plate and it is not
interchangeable with the pump valve plate.
The tapered bearing must now be removed from the
shaft. A bearing puller should be used that will pull
against the inner race of the bearing. Protect the
cylinder block face during this operation.
After removal of the bearing, slip the spacer out of the
bore in the cylinder block.
Place the motor in a horizontal position. Slide the
cylinder block assembly off the shaft while holding the
external end of the shaft.
