Anyone have any ideas on where to find a cheap tool to pull the bearing off on a Kirby? I have loked locally to no avail.

Also, what type of sealent would be recommended for sealing the fan case on the kirby to keep dust out?

Well, youre gonna need a bearing puller. I know sometimes theyll come with lawnmowers, or in lawn mower tool kits. Kirby sells them, theyre $18. I think its definitely worth it, to replace the bearings in all your Kirbys for $18.

Heck, a vacuum shop would cost you more than that just in labor costs to replace the bearings in ONE vacuum.

Oh, and for post-D80 models, youll need a special fan locking tool, which Kirby also sells.

For any models D80 and before, you can use an ordinary ice pick for a fan locking tool.

I beleive a007kirbyman (Bill) can sell you both of these tools.
