You have to make sure you put bearings and spacers where they were on the older vacuums. If you don't it will not fit.

It may

With more spacers added. On its own, it won't fit.

The older fan sits deeper in the housing. If you took off a fan look for spacers and bearings.

I believe they had more than 1 style of front bearing plate. some were deeper than others. i have seen both. some are flatter similar to the 516. i need to know what yours looks like
