    If you post the model numbers off your unit I will see about posting a break-down showing how it's assembled.

    If you have the breakdown there is only one hard part, Its the removal of the pulley in some cases. They get rusted to the shaft and some I have destroyed trying to remove. Soak with WD40 and that may help, Put antiseize compound on the shaft before reinstalling the pulley for the next go around.
    If I have no problem with the pulley I can install bearings in a half hour or less.
    Good Luck
